 +===== Data Logging ======
 +
 +Without any changes to //​usddeck.c//​ there'​s a data logging functionality implemented. It can be enabled and configured by placing a config file on the µSD-Card. The File is being created by using the related python module which can be found in [[https://​github.com/​bitcraze/​crazyflie-firmware/​blob/​master/​tools/​usdlog/​CF_functions.py|tools/​usdlog]]. Just start the module as main. Logging 10dof data with 1kHz works quite good with a buffer of 120 elements. But you may have to try around a bit to get feeling on what is possible. If the buffer was too small or the frequency was too high there will be gaps in the log as you can see in the following picture:

 +
 +Config will be read only once on startup, therefore make sure that the µSD-Card is inserted before power up. If everything seems to be fine a µSD-task will be created and buffer space will be allocated. If malloc fails crazyflie will stuck with LED M1 and M4 glowing, otherwise data logging starts automatically after sensor calbriation. The logfiles will be enumerated in ascending ​ order from 00-99 to allow multiple logs without the need of creating new config files. Just reset the crazyflie to start a new file. For performance reasons the logfile is a binary file, but the python module also contains a function which will return the data as dictionary. For decoding just call
 +<code python>
 +import CF_functions as cff
 +logData = cff.decode(fileName)
 +</​code>​
 +where fileName is a file from the µSD-Card. For convenience there is also an [[https://​github.com/​bitcraze/​crazyflie-firmware/​blob/​master/​tools/​usdlog/​example.py|example.py]] which shows how to access and plot the data.
