This is an instructable on how to read a gyro sensor and plot the data using processing software at your desktop. I am using gyroscope model XV81-000 and an arduino. The device is a rough prototype of what will eventually become a self balance robot, this is the first part of the hole thing (read accelerometer and control a motor to self balance).
Step 1: What you need?
- Microcontroller, I used the Arduino board
- Jumper Wires
- Gyroscope XV-8100
