Post RELEASED: 3RD PARTY ROBOTC DRIVER SUITE V2.8
Original article: [LINK]

2 New Drivers
There are two brand new drivers for the latest NXT sensors, the Mindstorms AbsoluteIMU and the HiTechnic Passive InfraRed (PIR) sensor. The cool thing is that the HT PIR sensor will also work with the HiTechnic Sensor MUX (SMUX). Only one thing, though, when you’re using with the SMUX, you will not be able to adjust the deadband. The sensor will simply use the default value of 12.

I have not tested these drivers with the latest ROBOTC beta, so your results may vary.

Changelog
  • New: driver + test programs for the Mindstorms AbsoluteIMU
  • New: driver + test programs for the HiTechnic PIR sensor.
  • Some minor typos fixed here and there

Where can I download it?
You can get it at the usual place: [LINK].

Heads-up: The demo program "MSLL-test4.c" causes the NXT to lock up in the latest (3.5) release.

from botbench;

"ROBOTC 3.50 Now Available!

Please note that the Driver Suite has not been updated yet to work flawlessly with this new version. I will update it in the coming weeks and add a whole slew of new drivers."

I know, I read the instructions last also :|

I am waiting for a small update to ROBOTC (3.51) before releasing the new beta for the driver suite. There have been a few subtle changes to a couple of low level I2C functions that require some code changes and a little testing. I have tested two of my drivers with 3.50 and they worked flawlessly. Since I only have access to these two at the moment, I will have have you guys do some of the testing when it's released.
