W10 - SENSORS FOR GROUP ASSIGNMENT
The goal I set to myself was to work/ understand a sensor/ set of sensors a day during a month (all the ones that came in a set produced by Elegoo). This process took place during an Independent study summer 2018.
I did a brief research on each sensor, took some notes, and finally tried to create a quick prototype for each one.

DAY 16 & 17
GY-521 MODULE - MPU 6050 SENSOR
DEBUGGING BEFORE STARTING
TESTING I2C CONNECTION 3 AXIS QUATERNATION
TRYING TO BRING THE CONNECTION PHYSICAL VS DIGITAL
CALIBRATION OF THE MODULE
The module needs a couple of seconds each time to stabilize but it wasn’t working at the beginning.
STABILIZATION OF THE MODULE
The module needed a immobile base to start up the process so I used a bread board to wire the module.
PLAYING WITH DELAYS TO SYNC THE SENSOR
After getting lots of overflow of data using the serial connection, I tried to minimize the risk of freezing the app by adding different quantities of delay. The three videos below show different amounts of delay applied, and different levels of responsiveness. The trick was finding a balance between the overflow and the smooth movement of the sketch.
This experiment is a straightforward approach on how to bring a physical connection between the real- analog movement and the real-time digital representation. By adding cardboard wings, the user understands how the sketch works.
