I’m new in this forum and also not working with robots actually, but I though I could find an help here about the installation of a IMU, or better an AHRS.
I work at the Centre for Marine Technologies and Ocean Engineering in Lisbon. Within the scope of a European project (http://routing-project.eu/) we are installing a measurement system on-board a containership. We are used to work with accelerometers, but generally with analog output.
This time we bought a AHRS with a digital output (UART). We should be able to handle it, but we have some problems with the hardware to connect the sensor to a computer or even better to a compact Rio.
The connector on the sensor is a SAMTEC FTM-110-02-F-DV-P as can be seen in the user manual:
Any suggestion is really really appreciated!!
Thank you in advance.
