Custom Sensor Integration and Monitoring

Hi
I have been searching day for a straight forward solution or at least a clear starting point for my project.
I want to sample some custom sensors… My sensors are being sampled and processed via a separate Arduino board. Then I can send the sensor data using ADC Channels, Serial, I2C , etc. I want to sent this values to Pixhawk. Create a mavlink message for them and then I can monitor the values in Qgroundcontrol analyze plot and data monitoring as MY_SENSOR_1…
I also want to include them in the log file stored in SD card…
Can you please help me where to start and what resources are out there?

its possible with scripting to read in from a serial port and save to SD card, sending back over mavlink requires a little more effort, but is not too tricky to add.

You have to create Mavlink messages in your arduino and send them via the flight controller (which acts as a mavlink router) to gcs. You can log on the ground…
