Accelerometer and Gyroscope

The MPU-6050 sensor contains a MEMS accelerometer and a MEMS gyro in a single chip. It is very accurate, as it contains 16-bits analog to digital conversion hardware for each channel. Therefore it captures the x, y, and z channel at the same time. The sensor uses the I2C-bus to interface with the MYOSA Motherboard.

Output: Acceleration: x, y and z-direction in terms of g and rotation in degrees(°)
