It's my first experience with sensors etc.
I'm trying to use the InterSense NavChip IMU (Inertial measurement
unit) sensor with Fedora. Would anyone know how to go about this?
The sensor is detected as /dev/ttyUSB0
I've tried both moserial and cutecom. Cutecom doesn't show ttyUSB0 at
all. Is there a way of "converting" ttyUSB0 to serial, i.e., ttyS*? (Is
this an issue?)
This is what dmesg says on device connection and disconnection:
> [100975.794455] usb 2-1.1: new full-speed USB device number 8 using ehci_hcd
> [100975.881230] usb 2-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=10c4, idProduct=ea60

I've uploaded the reference documents to my fedora people space here
if any one wants to take a look.
The packet format for the sensor is also given in the docs above.
I've also asked a question on stackexchange which has more info (dmesg +
attempts with the sample program that intersense have provided)
(Please feel free to direct me to any documentation for dummies if that
would improve my understanding of the subject)
Please only print if necessary.
