Hi all is it possible to connect an Xbee directly to a APM2560 without using the IMU Shield? If so how do I go about it?Continue

Converting Raw Data from Ardupilot Mega

Hi all I tried creating a vb software to receive sensor data from the Ardupilot Mega but all I got was jibberish (see below), does anyone know how do I go about converting this to useful data?…Continue

"Hey thanks! Btw will removing the IMU shield affect the programming for Xbee transmission in any way? My Ardupilot is receiving data from an EM406A gps so I was wondering if i could remove the IMU shield."

"This is the image from the wiki, of the 2560 upside down.  In the top left you see TX3 and RX3, the "telemetry" port lines. Those are the two serial lines that are passed "up" to and through the IMU board and used for the…"

"Yep I have both GPS' still trying to receive GPGGA and GPRMC ;_;, want to extract the airspeed, altitude and GPS coordinates from these 2 onto a vb program"

Ken replied to longbow's discussion Is this correct?
"That does not compute. The source code for the EM-406 is probably pretty tightly controlled by its manufacturer.  It already outputs GPGGA and GPRMC, why would you think you need source code to transmit that? Do you mean that you want to…"

"Thanks Ken, btw do you happen to have a sample source code for em406 gps receiver that can transmit GPGGA and GPRMC?"

Ken replied to longbow's discussion Is this correct?
"1.The default for the (DIY Drones) MediaTek is 38,400 bits per second, not 4,800. (The EM-406 has a default of 4,800.) Now you should get data. 2. I prefer to check for availability, not read a byte and discard if -1. But yous pay your money and…"

"It might look like Jibberish, but it's actually a binary protocol. I think you're going to have quite a challenge parsing it...especially as your first protocol project.   http://qgroundcontrol.org/mavlink/start  "

"Solved! Its connected directly to my laptop via a serial cable, I flipped a switch on the Ardupilot and wala, its working. Thanks man."

Brent Quigley replied to longbow's discussion XBees not communicating?
"Did you actually set the baud rate to 59600, or is that a typo? It looks like the GCS software is set at 57600, like the APM Mission Planner."

Don Brooks replied to longbow's discussion Compilation Error
"I don't use the HK GCS. First thing to find out is if the APM Planner GCS displays data, and whether you are conencted over USB or XBee. If you are using xbee, your baud rate is too high, it need to be 57600."

"Thanks man I have managed to compile and upload the Arduplane software to the Ardupilot Mega. However I've got a new problem, the HK GCS does not display any flight data: "

"Oh I see the problem. The downloadable copy of Arduplane 2.28 was put out before the libraries were updated for Arduino 1.00.Try using Arduino 0022 relax."
