communication with the imu

A short post to say that i can now access the imu’s registers for writing and reading from the shell. So it s all going well, i need now to learn how to get the right configuration and also find something to have a visual of the movements of the imu, apparently opengl would be a good idea.

    Hey I just needed a soft to monitor an IMU too and I found that: https://gitorious.org/imu_viewer/imu_viewer
    It’s written in Qt and works on linux. Just install Qt Creator.
    This code reads the data from a socket but you can easily modify it to read it from a serial port.

    Hope it helps 🙂

      Thanks very much, I just gave a quick look for now because I am working on something else but I am pretty sure it will be useful.
