cbanta1 replied to cbanta1's topic in MPU-6050 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope (InvenSense)Thank you very much for the advice! I'm looking for frequency on the low end (50-400hz) so nothing too high, but I'l do some more digging into measuring it via a microphone.
cbanta1 posted a topic in MPU-6050 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope (InvenSense)Hello All, I'm working on a project where I'm looking at trying to calculate sound frequency, my understanding is that because I only care about what the frequency is, not necessarily the sound itself, and accelerameter may be the best sensor for the job (Planning on mounting it securely to a plastic sheet so it gets the vibrations). I purchased an MPU-6050 chip and it will arrive in a couple days, but now I've started trying to find some documentation to lead me along the right path and am not finding too much. Can someone point me in the right direction on this? and if this is not the best tool for the job i'm all ears, I'd rather do it right. I'm also trying to make this a low power project as it will be running on battery. Thank you, CBanta
