Problem when connecting Digilent PmodNav with arduino

Question

Hi, i am a newbie and need help regarding the control system that i am doing at the moment. I try to connect PmodNAV with Arduino UNO and followed this tutorial: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/software/tutorials/digilent-core-install/start. Unfortunately, i get this error:
"PmodNAV_ArdUNO:31: error: 'LSM9DS1' does not name a type". I already installed the required version of Arduino (1.6.9) as they said newer version might come with the compatiblity issue. Can anyone help me regarding this problem? Thank you very much for your time on considering my problem.

Hi @aliff saad,

Welcome to the forums. Here is the resource center for the PmodNAV. Here is a completed INO file, basically a  main file, for the PmodNAV and an Arduino. The error is stating that LSM9DS1 is not assigned to a data type I.E. int, char... or in the case of the INO it is a class. Did you also download the SparkFun LSM9DS1 Arduino Library and add the src files to your project? 

cheers,

Jon

Hi @jpeyron

Thank you for your reply and i am really sorry as it took me too long to come back on this matter. I just went through it again and followed your guidelines. Unfortunately, i still get the same error. I have included the src files and installed Digilent using the board manager but still the program displayed this: "'LSM9DS1' does not name a type". I have attached together the file that i used to be uploaded in the Arduino. Can you guide me on how to solve this? Thank you.

Hi @jpeyron

Thank you very much for your reply. Seriously i am really appreciate it. I have attached together the images of the error i obtained. This is the path where i paste the src files for the LSM9DS1:

C:\Users\aliff\Documents\Arduino\libraries\src

Hi @aliff saad,

I would suggest to make sure that there are no spaces in your paths.  I downloaded the library and placed it here: 

 C:\Users\jpeyron\Documents\Arduino\libraries\SparkFun_LSM9DS1_Arduino_Library-master\examples\LSM9DS1_Basic_SPI

I then opened the arduino ide using the digilent core and ran the LSM9DS1_Basic_SPI.ino with no issue as shown in the attached screen shot below.

best regards,

Jon

Hi @jpeyron

Thank you for your reply. I have checked the path and there is no spaces between them. Also, i followed the path that you used to placed the library. i deleted the old library in the following path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\SparkFun_LSM9DS1_Arduino_Library-master\examples\LSM9DS1_Basic_SPI. And, there is no more error and the file can be compiled. But, a new error come out. I attached the image of the error that i obtained. It said "COMM Port COM3 does not exist. Can't open input or output stream". I have checked and ensure the port is correctly used, but the error is still there. The error was obtained as i were using the desktop in my lab. I also tried to use my laptop and the error mentioned about the bootload (Picture 3). What does it mean, Jon? Thank you

 

Regards, 

Aliff

Hi @aliff saad,

In the tool section of the Arduino IDE below the board selection you must also select the com port you would like to use. Similarly, you will also need to select the board you are using from the tools->boards section as well since it looks like the Arduino IDE thinks you are using a Basys MX3.

best regards,

Jon
