The MPU6050 contains both a 3-Axis Gyroscope and a 3-Axis accelerometer allowing measurements of both independently, but all based around the same axes, thus eliminating the problems of cross-axis errors when using separate devices.
- Accelerometer ranges: ±2, ±4, ±8, ±16g
- Gyroscope ranges: ± 250, 500, 1000, 2000 °/s
- Voltage range: 3.3V – 5V (the module include a low drop-out voltage regulator)
This simple module contains everything required to interface to the Arduino and other controllers via I2C (use the Wire Arduino library) and give motion sensing information for 3 axes – X, Y and Z.
