  • 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.

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 [...]

Teddy bear robot toy

Posted on May 12, 2010

By Vincent Abry & filled under Uncategorized.

The teddy bear is definitely the next hit for robot toys. The Fujitsu Labs in Japan are in the process of developing a very sophisticated robotic teddy bear which is capable of carrying out nearly 300 different actions. According to plasticpals, the robot is currently being demonstrated at the Fujitsu Forum 2010. The bear has [...]

BallP: well-balanced and with loads

Posted on May 04, 2010

By Vincent Abry & filled under Prototypes.

Do you remember the acrobat robot? Now here’s another more advanced version with BallP which can even withstand heavy loads without falling. BallP, which is 51 cm tall (20 inches) and weighs 7.5 kg (16.5 pounds), balances on a ball with the help of 3 stabilizer wheels, gyroscopes, micro-controllers and accelerometers. Its inventor is Massaki [...]

I have four KVH DSP-3000 fiber optic gyroscopes. Serial, 1000HZ, asynchronous. Decided the DSP-5000's were more what I was looking for. Three of them are new and sealed in their original boxes, one has been opened for a test fit, and its still ...

Soo, let me see if i understand this: a gyro is the best and fastest in giving me the correct tiltangle Not exactly, gyroscopes measure angular velocity, how fast something is spinning about an axis.

dear Coleman, I'm presently studying the SPI sensors solution. According to what you said, they must be better and low the drift because they have a built-in A/D (so i assume that they grab every movement). But the problem is now how to control those sensors. The roBoard has a SPI interface, but it'...

Hi Eric, PWM stands for "Pulse Width Modulation" and is generaly associated with digital lines and the timing between on (5v) and off (0V). The A/D on the RoBoard is still 10-bit, but the processor is the fastest we offer, and it can run a standard operating system. There are analog to digital conve...

Dear Coleman I've been actively searching for other solutions. First one, Data Acquisition Boards, which seems to be more powerful than microcontrollers. Another one, the RoBoard, very interesting. Because it has analog inputs, we are evaluating the process power compared to microcontrollers and DAQ...

Dear Coleman, Thanks for your reply, that is very helpful. But i'm not very much advanced, because when i look to your catalogue, there are 10 different brands, with 6,8 different controllers in each. That gives about eighty microcontrollers to compare ! Sorry to tell, but the real tech specs are di...

Hi riton_v, Welcome to the RobotShop Forum. The drifting problem is mainly caused by the fact that a microcontroller can only process so much data at a given time, and the values between those readings are lost. The Arduino boards are certainly not the fastest boards and their ADC also presents a pr...

Hi, I'm working on a motion capture project, that needs to measure rotation (not position) of a hand in space. I have a few questions about it : -drifting problems. Your thread about IMU is interesting, but quite vague. You say 'use an IMU (inertia measurement unit) rather than just a gyroscope as i...

... (inertia measurement unit) rather than just a gyroscope as it helps compensate for drift. This means you will have to manage the output from two gyroscopes and three accelerometers (your R/C control only uses two analog inputs with unknown specifications). The easiest approach is to use a microcontroller ...
