  • 6 DOF Gyro, Accelerometer IMU - MPU6050
    Nice product
    Review by Adrien
    Easy to use. This IMU coupled with Kalman filter is a good way to stabilize an UAV for instance !

  • 6 DOF Gyro, Accelerometer IMU - MPU6050
    Great product
    Review by Vincent
    The MPU 6050 works great.
    It's easy to get it working and retreive some raw data of it. There's a lot of documentation for it on the internet. I use it with my beaglebone black in C++. The data are precise enough for my quadcopter.

  • ADXL335 3-Axis Accelerometer Module
    Good measure, wrong accelerometer
    Review by David
    The accelerometer is great, have a good measure but in the chip it appears as 338 not 335.

Robot Reverse Engineering: Designing an Autonomous Transatlantic Boat

Posted on March 06, 2014

By Jeffrey Arcand & filled under Entertainment, Robotics Projects & Kits.

Some of you may have hear about Scout — The Autonomous Transatlantic Robot. She is a 12-foot long robotic solar-powered boat designed and built by 7 college/university students from the USA. She was launched in August 2013 from Rhode Island and programmed to autonomously cross the Atlantic Ocean to her destination in Spain. Although she [...]

Basics: How Do I Choose Appropriate Sensors?

Posted on February 06, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry, Where to Start.

For a robot to react to its environment, it must first obtain information about its surroundings. Robots are not limited to just sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Robots can not only sense but give accurate values for a variety of environmental factors that humans are otherwise unaware of or incapable of doing.  Measure Distance [...]

You can use a three axis accelerometer with high accuracy. Note that accelerometers read the direction of gravity, so to get the angle of the incline, you would need a secondary device such as a larger flat surface (to place on the incline). You would then ...

You can get an MPU6050 that integrate both an Accelerometer and a Gyroscope. So you have both sensors and will judge by yourself.. ;) There are board like this: * http://www.robotshop.com/en/6-dof-gyro-accelerometer-imu-mpu6050.html Or a complete Arduino board, soldered with the MPU6050. * http://ww...

I see the Robobasic supports built in Gyro commands so would be simpler to implement. Has anyone got any video clips of a gyro stabalised RoboNova. _________________ We utilize the experience and knowledge of a team of Pass4sure JN0-332 for more information APPLE further details University of Alberta

What are the problems with Allen screws? I did not want to seal the screws in on the Robonova in case I need to change a servo etc. I wonder if there are angular Philips drivers that let me turn the screws inside the feet and pelvis of the Robonova. I just found a screwdriver that could turn the scr...

... will see that pins A-B-C-D can be used as either digital inputs or analog inputs . This means that you can use switches, analog gyros, or analog accelerometers with the SSC-32 directly. Sensors that require I2C (some gyros and accelerometers) or UART-serial (GPS) cannot be done with the SSC-32. ...

... its turns. This however requires that the feet of the robot drag on the walking surface, so there can't be too much traction. 2) You will need accelerometers in addition to gyros because the gyros will drift by themselves and the robot will think it is falling over even if it isn't moving. ...

There are many ways of doing it. Not sure what your range of values that come from x_accel, but you could always do scaling of it your self, or you could for example, figure out what is the range of values you wish to give to slowmove, and then simply use the map function to map the range of values ...

hi Kurt, Well i have it working now. well i say working i have managed to get the servo to get fast the more you incline the sensor. :D but its quite temperamental and unstable as the sensors have multiple home address's. im using the Varspeedservo.h library allowing me to control angle and speed qu...
