This is a 4.2" LCD screen with Composite Video Out - > 12 V

Hooked to the screen there is a Sport Camera (the same i use for my quadcopter)

The goal is to hook up the Mpu6050 to have ACC/GYRO feedback for MRL so that i can move InMoov Head like Kwatters did with his Oculus Rift.

On the way to make my MPU6050 talk with MRL over serial

MPU6050 to borg... I2C on Arduino

Alessandruino's picture

Here is my test with the MPU6050 sensor with Arduino.

I'm using the I2Cdev library by jrowberg which is divided in 2 parts :

1) the "general" I2C communication part

2) the customized part for each sensor

To make it worky i had to "install" manually the libraries in the ArduinoIDE

So far i've tested thinkuino software, and it was worky..

Time ago i was trying to recompile the c file, but then we found the compiled version for windows

Thinkuino is a good starting point because we know that at least it works!!

It uses library

I have the mobile version of the headset( black version with built in Bluetooth)
