Inexpensive Gyro+Acceleration+Attitude sensor in VHDL


Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with a sub-$10 6-axis gyro/acceleration/attitude sensor (from http://www.dx.com/p/mpu6050-serial-6-axis-accelerometer-gyroscope-module-kalman-filtering-angle-output-for-arduino-414210 with my Basys3 (and my Raspberry Pi Zero).


The sensor reports over RS232 at 115200 making it far easier to decode than with sensor that speak I2C.

The short video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKylOPzRqeY shows as the senor reads from -1G (approx 0xEFFF) to +1G ( approx 0x1000) as the sensor is rotated in the Y axis.
