I have a accelerometer/gyro/compass (Minimu9 v3) connected to my RPi by i2c.
It is working fine, and the minimu9-ahrs software pipes the data perfectly to a visualizer (ahrs-visualizer) using the following terminal command :
~$ minimu9-ahrs | ahrs-visualizer
I am trying a similar command to send the same data to the serial device ttyAMA0
~$ minimu9-ahrs > ttyAMA0
when executed, the cursor drops to the next line and waits (does this mean it is sending?)
I can see the serial device in PD, and it appears to be open:
"[comport] opened serial line device 0 (/dev/ttyAMA0)
port_list: 0 /dev/ttyAMA0"
BUT - I am getting no data,
would anyone know if I am on the right track?
ps. I have reached this stage with alot of trial and error, and literally no idea what im doing ( it has taken about a week - since i got my Pi and also started learning PD!)
