Issue: B-robot without Wifi
Hi,

We uploaded the Arduino code provided onto the Leonardo and used two stepper motors, which I think are the right ones (they are NEMA 17s), the motor drivers are DRV 8825. The problem is that when we ran the code it got stuck at initializing the stepper motors. There is no error message. The sketch just doesn't get past the "initializing steppers" part of the code. Do you have any idea what's going on?

We plan to run the robot without a WiFi board at first-- just to try to get it to stand still, and then give it a pre- programmed cycle. We thought that after that we could go straight to self-control with a distance sensor... Maybe the Arduino sketch isn't completing because it's supposed to have Wi-Fi hardware attached to the circuit, or just be connected to Wi-Fi? We are also using two 5 packs of 1.5 V rechargeable batteries, instead of one 8 pack of regular alkaline batteries. Is this okay?

Thank you for your help. Our robotics club is really looking forward to getting this to work.

Cheers,
