Issue with JetBot teleoperation and collision examples with Widget.Image

I have purchased the Waveshare JetBot w/ Nvidia Nano and was able to assemble the hardware and install the software following the directions.

I was able to run the Basic Motion example without issue.

I am now trying to run the Teleoperation example. I can successfully get to the “Create and Display Image Widget” step and everything seems to be going fine. At that step I get a “Error creating Widget: could not find model” error.

The image block is obviously not be created in the notebook as expected. I cannot go further and do not know what to do. I went to the next example “Collision avoidance”. I started down that example only to get the same error as above when trying to invoke the Image widget in that example as well…

Please help as I would like to be able to do all the examples as I was planning on using the JetBot for my Autonomous Vehicle class I am teaching next semester at the college.

Thank you in advance.

Best, Gary

Hi Gary,

Thanks for reaching out!

I’ve most commonly seen this issue using certain web browsers. I’ve primarily tested Google Chrome with JetBot.

Do you mind sharing the web browser you’re using?
