Navigation System

Hi,
I want to design a navigation system, that will ascertain its heading using an electronic compass(cmps03) and encoder's to calculate the disatance. The path would be user defined. I am using DEO NANO develompent kit (FPGA).Rightnow i am facing difficulty in interfacing a compass with DEO NANO.

An early response would be highly appreciated.




Kind Regards

Sorry I have a late response. Most interface to digital compass sensors are SPI, which you can build inside the FPGA to communicate. Once you have that module built you can make a state machine to tell the device you want to see data for how far away north is from the current heading of the compass.
