Today, I’m working on a simple openGL-based program to visualize the data provided by the IMU. Just to remind you, our IMU is a BNO055 from Bosch. This little chip integrates a 9-axis IMU, a microcontroller running AHRS algorithms. The program displays a simple shape, which should rotating according to our board position. It retrieves Euler angles from the IMU. The communication will be allowed by the USB-CDC and a shell command.
Ideally, this program is going to provide a model of our system (sphere and LEDs). It will help us to determine the format of our images and frames sent to the ball.
