  1. Hi, I am new to this so please bear with me. My current project requires that i use multiple MPU6050's in order to track the motion of a person. I am aware that the MPU6050 has two addresses and that in the code supplied by jeff you can state which address on the I2C bus to read from. The problem is with the use of the DMP code and interrupts, am I able to attach the second IMU to the alternate interrupt pin on the Arduino Pro Mini that I am using? If i was to do this what would i have to do in the example code and/or the libraries in order to determine which interrupt is read etc. I have tried to interpret the libraries to see if there was a line of code that states which interrupt pin is being used but i quite frankly dont know what i am looking at or looking for. I hope that someone will be able to help me. Thanks
  2. Hi, I know that there are some eamples showing how to put magnetometer data into DMP. For example this one: http://www.i2cdevlib.com/forums/topic/111-arduino-example-sketch-to-read-magnetometer-while-dmp-is-on/ but it does not make any sensor fusion. I couldn't find any library which would make magnetometer fusion inside DMP. Does such library exist? Maybe code in this file MPU6050_9Axis_MotionApps41.h make DMP+magnetometer fusion? I couldn't find any tips in the code and right now I am not able to test it. So the question is: does such library exist or the only way to do this is to make own fiters (for example complementary filter)? Maybe there is some MPU9150 library that can be used with MPU6050+magnetometer?
  3. Hi everybody, I've just arrived to this forum, and after looking for the answer with no results, I post this question if possible someone could answer me: Using the sketch provided by Jeff (Thanks for your contributions!! ) I noticed that axis direction z (yaw) and y (pitch) do not move according the datasheet axis scheme (pag 6), I mean, for instance, once I move the IMU in positive z, I get a negative vaue in yaw, and the same result in y axis. Could it be a matter of axis rotation regarding gravity substraction? Please, could please someone tell me something about it? Thanks!
  4. Hello Forum User, First off, thank you for taking the time to read this. Second, I require some assistance in the rewriting of the InvenSence DMP lib for the TI microcontroller for use with the Arduino Uno and MPU6050. I have managed to remove most of the syntax errors that occured when switching from .c to .cpp, and removed the TI microcontroller specific code, but I am having problems with utilizing the Wire.h twi libraries for the I2C communication (specificly writing a function to call the twi libs when the i2c_write or i2c_read functions are called.) Ideally, it would use the included Wire.h library or the i2cdev library for the i2c communication. The main reason for this rewrite is to provide the ability of the users to call all of the listed functions of the DMP. In my case, this is primarally for the Pedometer functions which are not included in other libraries, but it can be used for the other functions as well. Below is a link to the dropbox file with the original library and the modified library. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4umn96yhh5hb9gu/eMPL_Rewrite.zip?dl=0 Thank you very much for your assistance in the matter. -Amatoxin-
  5. Hey everyone! I've got my MPU6050 hooked-up to my Arduino UNO and have the DMP sketch running just find and dandy, sometimes... At times, the code will hang at "Initializing I2C devices..."; at other times it runs as expected. I'm having a hard time recreating the error; I don't think it's a hardware thing (loose wires perhaps since I'm still breadboarding) because I've got it sitting on my desk and without touching it the error comes up & then goes away with a simple re-compile of the sketch. I've put some print statements in the initialize() function to see which sub-function might be causing the issue and I've narrowed it down to setClockSource() Has anyone else experienced this or is this just on my end? Thanks!
  6. Hi all, I am a student and I am using Jeff's excellent library for my school project. I am using i2cdevlib with arduino and processing and have managed to read data from the sensor successfully using the teapot demo. The problem that I am facing is that the dmp needs some time for auto calibration, and hence the yaw drifts for about 15-20 seconds on every start up. However this does not affect me so much. My problem is that the sensor will be installed on a boat, and therefore, it will never be static due to waves, wind etc. This led to the dmp remain in auto calibration process and never stops yaw drifting. So my question is, is there a way to still use the mpu6050 with the i2cdevlib and the calibration period completes while the sensor is moving due to the waves movements? Or maybe can I eliminate this auto calibration process? Please help me since I am running out of time, and have no ideas how to solve this problem. Thanks in advance
  7. I would like to say thank Jeff for Greate library! Does somebody know how to switch off autocaliration? The one thats take place evry time DMP feels it is stationary? (I looked through the function declaration in lib and failed to find. I also looked throgh specs and was also unable to find).
  8. The demo DMP sketch continually locks up after anywhere between 3-20 seconds into running. The demo code is unmodified in any way other than commenting out a few of the #define's to limit the output. I get no errors and no FIFO overflows, results appear on the serial monitor...but then the program just hangs. I have a clean setup here...nothing else attached to the Arduino. Suggestions??
  9. Hello! I am kindly asking for help with my small question: I am writing some algorithm, which must work one time in one loop iteration. It takes him ~ 5-7 msec to proceed every loop(). I noticed, that my program hangs sometimes. Very rarely: ~ after 10 - 30 minutes of working. Than I went to DMP example, added delay(6) at the end of a loop.... And the same result: sometimes it hangs (after 10 - 30 minutes of working). I added Serial.println in the loop, where the program waits for interrupt, because it is the only one loop. Like this: while (!mpuInterrupt && fifoCount < packetSize) { Serial.println("Waiting..."); } And there is no "Waiting..." messages, when it hangs. Here is a full code of "my" MPU DMP example. It is the same as standart exampe, except two of three lines. I also added the loop period counting and printed it with YPR data. Also I tried it with two different MPU-6050... Sory for my English :-)
  10. Hi, my name is Stephane, 44 yo, and I'm a software engineer. I'm working on Segway clone as a hobby.. I'm facing an issue when I make LCD updates via I2C when DMP is activated. The program run a few seconds then hangs. The same code run well in the MPU6050_RAW, that is why I'm concerned about the fact that the DMP is conflicting. I've tried with pullpups resistors, different LCD libraries, delays, without interuption etc .. and now I'm out of ideas. Here is the code, it's 99% the same as MPU6050_DMP6 + LCD parts in bold Any idea ?

  11. Hello, Thanks for the awesome work on the MPU60X0 series Mr.Jeff. I am having some trouble on using this : http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-MPU-6050-Module-3-Axis-Gyroscope-Accelerometer-Module-for-Arduino-MPU-6050-/170881535422 with an arduino uno. I wired up the sda, scl, vcc ,gnd and INT pins to arduino. The raw sketch in the examples works fine with relatively changing values with respect to the mpu, however when i try to run the DMP sketch from the examples (for ypr), I get random values ( all sorts from -ve to +ve extremes). Please help , what might be going wrong?

  13. I've seen a couple posts on here asking about incline. Like this one in which Jeff gives a knowing smile at the end when he says the math is beyond him: http://www.i2cdevlib.com/forums/topic/37-incline-of-the-sensor/ But then in this one says the DMP is awesome because it can do those calculations for us: http://www.i2cdevlib.com/forums/topic/29-how-to-calculate-yaw-roll-pitch-from-mpu6050/ So I'm confused as to whether or not we can already calculate pitch and roll minus any gravity affects based on the current MPU6050 library in the I2CDev package? I thought maybe OUTPUT_READABLE_YAWPITCHROLL would provide those values but they definitely seem affected by gravity when I move the sensor around. There's a note above that constant declaration that says "this also requires gravity vector calculations" but I didn't know if that meant "requires you to do them yourself" or just that a note that they are required and being performed behind the scenes. Help me Jeff, you're my only hope! Thanks for the awesome library by the way!
