MPU6250 notes

Active today
Viewed 14 times

I’m currently working on a rough VR system using the Raspberry Pi 3, and, of course, for that, I need a way to track the custom headset and controllers. I need the sensors to be compatible with Python 3, so that I can track them in 3D space.

Does anyone have any recommendations on any sensors like this?

The MPU-6050 is a great choice.

To use it on Raspberry Pi 3, you need a python module. Follow instructions:

1. install the python-smbus package

sudo apt install python3-smbus

2. Install this package from PyPi repository

pip install mpu6050-raspberrypi  

If you find a problem, post an issue here.
