Pyboard D-series accelerometer-gyro ?

Post by King YODA » Tue Apr 23, 2019 9:28 pm

Hi everibody !!!
I want to know 2 things:

- Do you think that this pyboard is better than the microcontrollers of Arduino who have the same size ?

- If it has an accelerometer-gyro or if we have to buy one like the Mpu6050 ?

Thanks for the answers !!!

1. Yes, far better!
2. It has no accelerometer, you‘ve got to buy one.

The D-series is superb.

I would suggest an MPU-9250 such as this one: the MPU6050 is long obsolete and has been replaced by the MPU-9250. Some of the MPU-6050 devices seem to be questionable Chinese clones. We have drivers for genuine Invensense/TDK MPU-6050, MPU-9150 and MPU-9250 devices here.

There is also a sensor fusion module using the Madgwick algorithm.
