  1. Sorry for this super late reply. I was caught up with other work for a while.

     

    I am a bit confused with the setting of the correct registers. In your code you seem to be setting registers associated with the digital filters. In the documentation I have ( the register map & descriptions) I cannot find the mention of the registers with which I can set the DHPF & DLPF, but I am assuming they are situated at register number 97 and 98.

     

    What would the effect be to not set these registers at all? would it make the motion detection not work?

     

    So far I have tried to:

     

    - set the motion detection threshold register to 0x02

    - left the accelerometer start up delay at 4ms

    - Enabled the motion detect interrupt

    - Then I try to continuously read the Int_status register testing to see if the motion detect interrupt bit gets set to 1 when I move the sensor.

     

    So far getting nothing.

     

    The documentation I have also doesn't show any registers associated with the DMP, and it seems to me like there are quite a few more settings to be made before interrupts will work. 

     

    Does anyone perhaps know the exact steps to go through, and which registers should be set to which values. I feel like the MPU6050 documentation itself leaves much to be desired.

  2. Sorry that I too am opening this thread up again.

     

    What exactly does the X, Y and Z components of the accelerometer represent? Am I correct in thinking that if any one of the axes are pointing directly upwards away from the earth it (without noise) it should be displaying 1g (16384 at 2g setting). If any of the axes are pointing straight down it should be reading -1g (-16384). all axis reading zero when they are pointing directly horizontal.

     

    Then a value for the X-axis is its projection onto the vertical 1g reference?

     

    If I am right, what would be the best way to manipulate the data to accurately measure angles at points in time. 

  3. Hi all

     

    I am trying to get my mpu6050 to generate a motion interrupt. I mainly want my host processor to only start storing data from the mpu6050 when it detects that it has started moving. 

     

    To my knowledge I only need to set the correct registers and connect the INT pin to a interrupt port on my host processor. The code is already set up but it does not receive a interrupt.

     

    the registers that I have set to enable the motion detection is:

     

    INT_PIN_CFG register is set to 0x30

    INT_ENABLE register is set to 0x40

     

    I left the motion threshold to 0.

     

    I would think that this should cause an interrupt on the INT pin, but so far I am not getting anything.
