Extract IMU data and Transects




Im new to OpenROV so help would be greatly appreciated. If my questions have been answered elsewhere pointers to those forums would be much appreciated too.

I was interested in extracting the IMU data for processing it into X,Y,Z and perhaps carrying out a transect or two. I was going to write my own scripts and files to do so. So my questions:

  1. Can I get IMU output streamed out to a file or something on beagle bone? Would you guys know which file outputs this data?

  2. Can I trigger the IMU in case I want to syncrhonize it with a GPS - for a GPS fix everytime I surface?

  3. How do I go about programming a transect into the OpenROV?
