I’m working to integrate a multi-parameter sensor sonde into the BlueROV2 Heavy lift, and would like to send the data to the topside via the fathom-X tether. The sensor data is in SDI-12 format, which I can read via USB converter with the raspberry pi.
I’m looking for advice on the easiest way to do this. The options I’m considering are:
- create a new mavlink message and decode the messages with pymavlink,
- write a bash script to send the sonde data to a seperate port over existing ethernet
- something else
Does anyone have advice, or can you direct me to posts where people have done similar things?
