6 Degrees of Freedom IMU Digital Combo Board with the ITG-3200 MEMS gyro
We are having trouble getting this gyroscope to work. The VI's for the gyroscope in labview are analog, and we are not able to get the gyroscope to give an output using the i2c vi's. How would we be able to impliment this idea and use it with the meccanum vi's along with our other code?
In order to use the I2C VIs, you'll need to know how your device communicates via I2C. The product manual for this particular gyroscope can be found here: https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Sensors/Gyro/PS-ITG-3200-00-01.4.pdf I would pay attention to registers 27-34.
In the past, this team was able to implement I2C VIs to talk with their gyroscope. You might take a look at how they put their code together and take ideas from them on how to poll registers and what to do with the information when you find it: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127677
