Serial Communication

I need help setting up serial communication between my laptop and a Navio2 on a raspberry pi 3B. I am trying to do this wirelessly, so I can view data as it is being taken while in flight. I am running the most up to date emlid version of raspbian. I am trying to use a 3dr uart radio to connect my laptop and pi. I am not using ardupilot, however. This is because I am using the Navio2 as a developing board, so I have built custom software using the Emlid examples. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @mjc1521,

I hardly can provide you with a ready solution for this.

I suppose you can read and write the data directly using /dev/ttyAMA0 for UART connection.

Could you provide me with some details on how to do that? I will gladly give it a try to see if it works.

Hi @mjc1521,

Unfortunately, I never tested how it should work, so I barely can provide you with a detailed guide.

I can suggest examining Ardupilot’s source code for more information.
