Hi community, Has anybody tried to use an Ardu-IMU with ros ? The new version Ardu-IMU V3 seems to be very interesting and powerful... Its xmas-time and I like to buy one for my robot :-)

Cheers Christian

As the ArduIMU is using an atmega328 and arduino IDE for development, it would probably be pretty easy to modify the provided source code to use rosserial_arduino and publish the data over an FTDI cable to a ROS powered computer.

For those that stumble upon this page, rosserial cannot publish a full IMU message due to the hardware buffer length so your best bet is to publish data in a flat array and then republish it in the sensor_msgs/IMU message. :-)
