Accessing Navio2 position and orientation data from Raspberry Pi

I am creating a project where I would like to access the Ardupilot position and attitude information from a script running on the connected Raspberry Pi. As far as I understand it should be possible to use something like Mavlink to connect to the autopilot and get this data.

I have my python script running on the pi and I have run the given example scripts to access the sensors on the Elmid image; but these scripts directly access the raw sensor data not the nicely fused data from Ardupilot.

Can someone provide some hints on how to do what I am trying to do?

Hi @rhino_aus,

I recommend you to take a look to ROS. For example, you can use rostopic tool to read such data as IMU readings. You can start with ROS tutorial from our docs.
