Hello :)

I have a Hokuyo utm-30lx mounted on the patrolbot from mobilerobots, it was working quite nice with a 12V external power supply, then I decided to connect it to the 12V PWR right power I/O bay and suddenly I got no power from the bay and I had to turn the 12V power on again from the LCD panel. But, suddenly my computer could not read the device /dev/ttyAMC0

I have tried with to connect it under windows and it is the same problem.

Just wondering whether there is a way to find out the error and make the device work again

I am using ROSARIA in ROS.

Is there any command to the laser so I can restart the device?

Cheers :)

Ehm, that doesn't sound like a software problem. I don't know your robot, but suddenly no power shouldn't happen (I guess). The only thing I could image if there is a power cycle is that the device switched. Check with dmesg if that happened. There is then usually a /dev/ttyACM1 or similar.
