IMU and Magnetometer Data from Reach


I’m working on a robotics state estimation project and I am using two reach modules for DGPS tracking. As part of this process, I also require the magnetometer readings from the unit to maintain accurate state estimations. I’m currently using a ROS node to obtain the GPS readings via USB-to-PC connection and store them in a data file. I would like to obtain the magnetometer readings in the same fashion using a UART connection to the PC. Is there any documentation or example code for obtaining this data? My project is written in Python, so examples written in that language would be easiest for me to understand and implement.


I have had success getting IMU data out via a python script. Takes some configuration and calibration work. See this post: Success with IMU data!
