i am trying to integrate a wind sensor into Pixhawks hard- and software. All the work is done within my masters thesis.
Since now things worked good and I build a 5kg octokopter controlled by the pixhawk running arducopter on it. I already mounted the sensor on the copter and connected it to the serial 5 port. The sensor outputs the data as an RS232 signal which is converted via MAX3232 to 5V TTL level. So all the physical work is done and I have to do the software integration now. I spent a lot of work on changing the sf0x driver (also connected via serial port if you use it) from the pixhawk code base to my needs without success. What I wanted to do is reading the sensor data through the serial port and log it on the sd card. If it is possible I want to use the arducopter code base to be still able to connect to mission planner.
The message from the sensor looks like this:
Is there anybody who has done something similar and can share some code or help me ???
I´m really looking forward to hearing fom you!
