Jamie Bullock, a researcher at the Birmingham Conservatoire, contacted us to share his x-IMU to OSC Bridge. It is a software application that connects to the x-IMU via USB or Bluetooth and send received data over the computers network (Ethernet or WiFi) to any other network device as Open Sound Control (OSC) messages. It is a simple solution for interfacing the x-IMU to just about any software on any platform able to connect to a network. The official OSC website lists some of the many supporting OSC libraries available.

The software is compiled for MAC OS and currently supports only messages for Euler angles and calibrated gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer data. A USB connection requires that the FTDI drivers are installed. The projects is available to download on GitHub and more documentation available in Jamie’s original post.
