I have a development kit and an accelerometer from Bosch, and I am using their Bosch Development Desktop 2.0.

Their development desktop allows me to save the data into a .txt or a .csv once the testing has been completed. However, I am trying to pull the data in real-time, but their development desktop doesn't allow me to access the data during the course of my test. Only after I stop the data collection do I have access to the file.

Aside from trying to find a different development kit and sensor from a different supplier - does anyone have any ideas about how to transmit the data in real-time (like, into Python or Matlab) so that I can run some algorithmic analysis on the data in real-time?

    \$\begingroup\$ Have you asked the manufacturer? This would be my first stop. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 18 '17 at 16:17

The manual, on page 16, section " Board communication" says you can configure the interface to be a COM port.

In principle, this means you can send and receive data using many different types of software and language.

I suspect the hard part will be working out the protocol they have used.
