Our team is trying to connect a UM7-LT IMU to a raspberry pi via the GPIO TX and RX pins using UART.
This very well could be a raspberry pi problem, but we have tried nearly every suggestion that we have found online and have not been able to get it work on the raspberry pi side of things, so we have reason to believe it is something with the IMU.
Upon connecting, the output in the console is a bunch of gibberish text.
We have verified that the TX and RX pins are connected correctly, 3.3v supply is being used, and a proper baud rate (115200) is being used.
We have tried adjusting the baud rates from 9600 - 115200, changing the language settings on the raspberry pi, and checking for inverted voltages.
Reading the data sheets, we are expecting the data to be .nmea strings, which should be outputting normally to the console. But the output is still garbage.
Raspberry pi is linux, so we cant install RedShift Labs software to test if it is working that way.
(I will attach a screenshot of the output in the terminal)
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
