  • I get it to read output for baud rate 38400 through a standard window. When I tried it on the python code, it gave:<br />
    <br />
    ,29,-265,14,373,375,367,-129,666,-4,#<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Invalid line<br />
    <br />
    Traceback (most recent call last):<br />
    File "\filer\jrumack\ms_windows\cpsc_redirected\Desktop\IMU_Razor9DOF.py", line 114<br />
    L1.text = str(float(words[0]))<br />
    ValueError: could not convert string to float: <br />
    <br />
    any ideas?

  • I recently had a similar problem and found the paper at: <br />
    http://delivery.acm.org/10.1145/1470000/1460250/a18-torres.pdf?key1=1460250&key2=8763761921&coll=DL&dl=ACM&CFID=598080&CFTOKEN=28135307 <br />
    to be helpful. Didn't get it to work (had trouble since there were magnets interfering with my IMU), but when I picked accelerations and gyroscope values, they followed expected/calculated paths

  • I recently got the board, along with an FTDI Basic and miniB cable to plug into my USB. I tried testing it using the python code given from the code base, but it never reads any of the information. I made sure to change it to the right com serial port, but I only get junk. Any ideas what's wrong?

No public wish lists :(
