    Obtain raw GPS values

    JorgeG

      Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to extract the raw gps data (lat, lon, and time) from the drone. I know that there's software that can run on a laptop that when connected to the drone it provides the data (qgroundcontrol, APM) but I'm looking for something that runs directly on the drone. I have the drone running ubuntu. I was able to extract the imu data from the drone using a code that I found that connects to the imu through the spidev interface. It runs directly on the drone and prints out the imu values in real time so if I were to move the drone it would display the changes in gyroscope and accelerometer values. I was wondering if there was a way to do something similar with the gps. I would like for the code to run directly off the drone meaning that I could just run it on the drone's command line and not through a groundstation. Is there some sort of program that does this or is there some sort of api that allows me to do this. Thank you.
