I?m using the 6DOF Atomic IMU. The board is hard wired connected to an RS232 port on my PC. I?m using custom made converter board with MAXIM MAX232 IC to convert from TTL to RS232. The hardware is ok.
I?m running the 6DOF Atomic Mixer application very smoothly. I set up the com port, frequency and the sensitivity of the acceleration. 6DOF Atomic IMU and the Atomic Mixer application work fine. The results are reasonable as I move the board.
Now when I connect the board to a terminal program, the data displayed (ASCII characters) have no meaning. I don?t know what I?m doing wrong here. I have tried with several terminal programs (Windows Hyper Terminal, Realterm terminal and Termite terminal) and same not reasonable data.
What I want to do: I want to see the data on the terminal and after to parse only the yaw output and use it in my application.
Please can someone help me and tell me how to get the right data on a terminal program. Maybe I should use some other terminal program.
Thanks in advance.
