Adafruit LSM303DLHC
#1
I'm fairly new to OpenPlotter and i'm not a software engineer. Have set up version 1.0.2 on a Rpi3 and now have an Adafruit chipped LSM303DLHC imu which is shown as being supported on the imu documentation page. I have it connected and using i2cdetect -y 1 indicate addresses 19 and 1e and also on the i2c tab detected addresses. Have tried the pypilot settings without any success. any help or advice would be very welcome

Connect your imu, open a terminal, type openplotter and press enter. Go to pypilot tab.

Is the imu detected in "Detected IMU:"? If not, press "Reset".
Press "Restart". What the terminal says? Paste here.

Thanks for your quick reply and hope the screenshot has been correctly added.
I note that the imu name is not what I expected. Are the i2c failed addresses those for the L3G4200D + HMC5883L.

Try again.

I have failed dismally in trying to get my Adafruit LSM303DLHC + L3GD20 chipped IMU board working. The i2c addresses are detected as 19 and 1e. I would appreciate any advice on an IMU that is known to work properly on the latest version of openplotter pypilot 1.1.0. alpha.

I am using the LGD20 and LSM303D IMU with my RPI3+.  The unit appears to be receiving data as the green processor LED is blinking and stops when I disconnect the I2C.


I have done the reset/restart routine to no avail.

I have attached a screenshot.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards

Steve

These sensors should work if they are the same as the polulu v3.

I have not done much to optimize the driver for them though. I found them no better than mpu9255.

In any case, what says i2cdetect -y 1?

Sean,

Thanks for the prompt attention. No data under I2C tab in OpenPlotter. pypilot tab Detect IMU 0
