I am working with turtlebot 2 , I have searched everywhere about this problem. After launching oslaunch turtlebot_teleop keyboard_teleop.launch the terminal works fine but turtlebot does not move or show any kind of movement. When I ran ''rosrun rqt_robot_monitor rqt_robot_monitor'' it is giving me these two errors , kobuki error and kobuki/watchdog no signal. Kindly help me out as I am a totally new to this thing.

It sounds like you're launching the telop applications but do not have the drivers for the kobuki started. For the teleop_keyboard launch files to be useful you need to also be running roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch in another terminal simultaneously.

@tfoote is right did you launch roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch ?

and did you heard the bring-up sound from Kobuki, when it get start, Kobuki could have a bringup sound.

if Kobuki cannot bring-up, you probably need this .

udev rules, . /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash

rosrun kobuki_ftdi create_udev_rules

i am also receiving same error. but i have tried all this. when i turn on kobuki i listen its sound. then i run first bringup minimal file but no bringup sound is there. then i check rqt status and i get kobuki error and watchdog signal error. I have also tried rosrun kobuki_ftdi create_udev_rules

but no use. what else could be the reason for kobuki and watchdog error signal? please help me.
