I am trying to implement an external sensor (OpenMV H7) connected to the Pixhawk Cube via the Telem 2 port and view the serial data in Simulink. I was able to follow the uORB example to read internal sensors, but I had no luck with external additive sensors. I tried to use Serial Recieve from the PX4 Autopilots Support Package and the Instrument Control toolbox, but am unable to see any data. Has anyone had experience with this?
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Alex,
Can you tell us a bit more about your model? What is the baud rate you are using? Did you try deploying your model on hardware? I am especially curious about what you tried with Instrument Control Toolbox (ICT) since ICT blocks canot be deployed on hardware?
