This application was designed to help you test your ArduIMU V2 by showing graphically and numerically all of the data being output from the IMU.

You can download the Setup here: ArduIMUTest Setup (3 MB)

This version of the Test App uses the MSCOMM control, so the max COM port number is 16 (unfortunately a limitation set forth my Microsoft).

Before starting the application, make sure your ArduIMU is sitting flat with the serial cable towards yourself. When the application starts, it will automatically try to find the right COM port and it defaults to 38,400 baud.

To reset the ArduIMU, click Disconnect and Connect again on the application. It takes about 10 seconds for the ArduIMU to boot up and start sending serial messages so please be patient.

No need for LabView runtime! Yay! However, it now requires DirectX 8 runtime :)

EDIT: A special thanks to Michal for providing the 3DS file and texture map! Thank you Michal!!!

Good job, I like it! Works well...

Nice !
Try to make the shape of the object as that of an RC plane, that will look good.

HappyKillmore - if you want some 3d airplane model I can create one for you. It would be a nice add on to my portfolio after 3D pointer from Remzibi OSD ;D

Michal, that would be awesome! Now I just need to figure out how to render it :)

For those of you using this app, please make sure you download the latest (currently on v1.0.15) because I found an error in my code that caused the Roll not to reach correctly when Yaw <> 0. Now moving the IMU in space should be considerably closer to reality..

Now that's really looks great !
Keep it up !

My ArduIMUTest works awesome with it.. Where do I find Source Code for this ???
Any more help on how to connect (hardware setup pics) ?
Comment by Paul Mather on November 20, 2009 at 8:56pm
I haven't taken any photos or written any FAQ about it. All I've got working right now is the FTDI cable connection and my uBlox connected.... that's about it. I have no clue what SCK, MISO, MOSI, PWM1, PWM0, D8, RST, SDA and SCI mean.....

No source code yet.... I've got some serious cleanup to do first (I stripped out someone else's DirectX code to do the yellow plane and it's a disaster).
