Troubleshooting Code Deployment Failure on Parrot Rolling Spider

Description

The deployment of the Simulink® model to a Parrot® Rolling Spider (using the Deploy to Hardware icon, ) sometimes fails. In this case, the Diagnostics Viewer displays the following error message:

This error is due to one of the following reasons:

  • The Bluetooth® connection between the Parrot Rolling Spider and the host computer is lost.

  • You upgraded the Simulink Support Package for Parrot Minidrones to version 17.2.2 or later, and you did not perform the Hardware Setup process after the upgrade.

    Version 17.2.2 or later of Simulink Support Package for Parrot Minidrones uses the IP address 192.168.3.5 for the Parrot Rolling Spider. In earlier versions, this IP address is 192.168.1.1.

Action

To troubleshoot the issue, try one of these two options:

  • Perform the steps required to connect the Parrot Roling Spider to the host computer using Bluetooth (see the related topics in Setup and Configuration based on the operating system running in the host computer).

    After the Bluetooth connection is established, deploy the Simulink model again to the Parrot Rolling Spider.

  • If you did not perform the Hardware Setup process after you had upgraded to version 17.2.2 or later, run the Hardware Setup process at least once for the Parrot Rolling Spider after the upgrade (see Hardware Setup). The setup process updates the IP address of Parrot Rolling Spider to 192.168.3.5.

    After the hardware setup is completed, connect the drone to the host computer over Bluetooth, and deploy the Simulink model again to the Parrot Rolling Spider.
