Hi, I have set up ROS to communicate between my robot (using raspberry pi) and my laptop. It worked for a period of time but somehow stopped working suddenly. The reported error is:

invalid master URI:
The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

Please note that the procedures I took for ROS master and slave to communicate should have been correct or I wouldn' t have succeeded in the first few times.

I can not find any related information for this problem, so someone who has an idea please tell me what is going wrong and how I can fix this please. Thanks.

invalid master URI:

If this is a copy-paste, then it's indeed an invalid URI, as it doesn't include the protocol part. It should probably be:

It worked for a period of time but somehow stopped working suddenly.

That would seem rather strange: unless you have someone else editing your files, the http:// part would have to have dropped of on its own.

This solves the problem. My fault. I forgot to add http:// in the latter times.
