Normally a Motorcortex application is configured to automatically boot when the machine is powered on. However it may be required for the software to be stopped or restarted in a different mode. This chapter shows how Motorcortex applications can be started, stopped and restarted.
- Motorcortex.io account
- Motorcortex Controller with running a application connected to laptop
Log into the Motorcortex controller from the console using a screen and keyboard or through ssh as described in Remote Access & File Transfer.
Virtual machine note
If a Virtual Machine is used it is convenient to put Motorcortex into Simulation Mode to prevent errors because there is no hardware connected.
Check the status of the motorcortex application:
Running: no Running: yes
Start the Motorcortex application:
sudo motorcortex start
Stop the Motorcortex application:
sudo motorcortex stop
Restart the Motorcortex application:
sudo motorcortex restart
Start the Motorcortex application in simulation mode:
sudo motorcortex startsim
Switching an already running system to simulation mode execute:
sudo motorcortex restartsim
