How to make a self balanceing robot using mpu 6050? Answered

Recently I brought my self a mpu 6050, and I was wondering how to make a self balanceing robot with it ? Iam curently having problems with the code (arduino) and was wondering if any one knows any tutorial related to this... thanks

Can I control the height of quadcopter using MPU 6050?

Is there a way that I can control the height of the quadcopeter using the MPU 6050? I know that the accelerometer and the gyroscope are used to measure the angular acceleration and the orientations respectively and stabilise the flight. But how would you measure the height of the quadcopter?

How to make the GY-87 work probably ?

Hey, This my first question and ... action here with this new account :) My problem is I'm making a quad-copter, which needs some balance and no problem of adding some features like alt. measurement and so. I bought a GY-87 10DOF chip which combines 5 sensors :- MPU6050 Gyroscope MPU6050 Accelerometer BMP085 Barometer BMP085 Temperature sensor HMC5883L Magnometer I don't know yet how to make the quad-copter balance using the chip but I'm focusing now on making the chip work at all. After 7 hours of searching I could get a messy code using KALMAN filter to get the gyro and accel angels which worked fine eccept that the code combines the Z axis with the compass reading and I need to understand how to make every reading separate, which get us to the secong problem, the compass is stuck at 50.3 degrees, after reading i found that i must enable the I2C cuz both of the MPU and the HMC uses the same bus ways, I added a delay (100) ms to let the HMC get it's reading, i could make it work till I realized that the reading is not from 0- 360, it's between 200 and ... maybe 342 ! although making the BMP work was difficult a bit.. now my questions are :- -Understand how the gyro code works or at least add the Z axis of the the gyro not the compass -How to make the compass work probably Files:- https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxGMyrtCX-KJVHB5S1luZ3VLeGM Libs:- https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxGMyrtCX-KJcXZ6VlZmejRDR2c

How to control the height of Quadcopter?

Hi, Is there a way to control the height of the quadcopter using the MPU 6050. I know that the sensors i.e. accelerometers and gyroscope measure the orientation of the copter and stabilizes them but how would u measure or like control the height of the copter? Is the controlling of height depends on the IMU unit of completely on the throtle provided to the motors?

Can anyone help me with the control algorithm for MPU 9150 (9-axis motion controller)?

Me and my team are working to make a Quad-copter using an Arduino. But to stabilize it, we planned to use MPU9150. We tried and we are still trying to make it work with the controller. So far, we can get the raw data from the motion controller, but we are unable to configure it as per our needs. So can anyone help with the control algorithm?? Thanks in advance.

Backup battery convert 3.6v nicad to 3.7v li-ion

Have a slot machine MPU backup battery 3.6v nicad. Would like to replace w/ 3.7v Li-ion NON-RECHARGEABLE and NOT have the battery charge. Was thinking I might be able to insert a diode in line with the battery to prevent the circuit from charging. Am I on the right track?Thank you for your timeJim B.

How to wirelessly transmit information to an Arduino?

So basically I am creating a movement based remote control. The movement is being handled by a MPU-6050 (3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope). The idea is to transmit the data to an Arduino that is off the controller on its own hub. The best I've found are these transceivers: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E594ZX0/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc;=1∣=A3GQ2RR1HCHKCZ  The problem with these is that they require an Arduino on both the transmitting and the receiving end. This project is very space limited and I doubt i could even fit an Arduino nano inside. Is there any method of acheiving this that would make use of the space more efficiently or should I just focus on making the casing larger and finding room for every component? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Quadcopter wont lift off? Answered

I have made a quadcopter. However, it wont lift off :( I really need help with that. Following is the list of components I have used: 1) http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk/QuadCopter-Full-Motor-ESC-Set-850Kv-p/acq-fmk85.htm 2) 6200mAh, 35C LIPO battery 3) http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk/ArduCopter-QuadCopter-v1-0-Frame-Carbon-Fiber-p/ac-frcarbon.htm The weight of the whole copter along with the battery and the components is 1.52Kg which I am sure the motors can lift. I am using and arduino UNO and an MPU 6050 along with a FLYSKY 6Channel Rx/Tx for communication. The motors run on full power, however I am not sure why I can not generate a lift :/ I really need to make it work as this is my final year project. PLeaseeee someone help me :(

Is there a simple way to build a configurable TOSLINK delay?

Some TVs require 3 frames for the interpolation of tweening frames (and then there is also processing overhead time). With frames coming in at 1/24th for film or 1/30 for tv then 2 or 3 frames out of sync can look horrible and add several hundred millisecond delays. The TV's SPDIF is already delayed and works great, but downscales DTS to stereo (I hate you Blu-Ray!). So I need a delay on optical that bypasses the TV to get DTS to work.   I've done some research and found that the following products do a audio delay to help with sync problems with LCD TV (esp 120Hz) and TOSLINK on older receivers that can't add the required lip-sync delay. The consumer level delays are made by: Felston - $250 J.S. Technology (UK company) - £79  Alchemy2 - $400-$450 Primare -£200 Bottom line, what does this take to develop: A TOSLINK receiver and transmitter. A MPU that can receive the serial stream store it in internal memory and read at a configured offset to transmit. Has anyone take up a project like this and be willing to post the intructions here. I hate to buy a new receiver just because of this, that would be wasteful.

Where/How to learn about Engineering basics?

I have been recently looking into engineering and how to build different equipment, and am wondering where people learn to do these kinds of things.  The first thing I saw that had inspired me was a man who built a glove and software that replicated finger/hand movements in motion capture fashion that was useful to me because I do 3D animations which is helped by motion capture.  I had built it because he had left a step-by-step tutorial on how to do so, and it worked perfectly.  The thing that upset me was that I have no understanding of how these parts work, I just bought the equipment and put it together based on his instructions.  So I am wanting to ask how I learn about this stuff?  Things that I am wanting to learn I believe are geared around Micro controllers (EX: Arduino), MotionTracking Device's (EX: MPU-9150), Multiplexers, and other stuff that revolves around that.  I have been looking for tutorials and books to help but have had no luck.  Also one of the most frustrating things I faced when putting the gloves together was that I had no idea what 'SIG', 'VCC', 'GND', or any of those meant.  I understand that I might sound pretty stupid, but I am genuinely interested in this am looking to learn about it, I just do not know how to.  Thank you for any reply in advance.
