  1. Hello there, I have built a balancing robot using the mpu6050 and have got it all to work well so far. Here is a picture of the setup: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1X3D227-XxdSUVEekFsTXU0aXM Now I am seeking to add some extra functionality to it, and implement a state space control scheme. I was originally using an Arduino Uno for everything, but now that I got encoders for the motors, and I have no more free interrupt pins on the main Uno board, I have also added a Pro-Mini to the setup. The Pro-Mini is intended to handle all the measurements and calculate the final values for the robot's horizontal position and vertical angle. With this setup, I would like to have the mpu6050, the Pro-Mini, and the Uno all connected via i2c, and only send or request data when the main Uno requires it during the loop. I got the setup working with a software serial connection between the two Arduino boards, but I wasn't happy with the speed of that setup. I've spent hours trying to get the Uno to act as a second slave device and respond to transmission events from the Pro-Mini, but I am pretty sure there are some conflicts with the DMP activities for the mpu6050. I read this post: https://www.i2cdevlib.com/forums/topic/111-arduino-example-sketch-to-read-magnetometer-while-dmp-is-on/ and tried to adapt it to set the address to that set on my Uno, but still no luck. This is the code I'm currently running on my Uno to be the receiver of the data that is sent: #include <Wire.h> void setup() { Wire.begin(0x1E); // join i2c bus with address #8 Wire.onReceive(receiveEvent); // register event Serial.begin(57600); // start serial for output } void loop() { delay(100); } // function that executes whenever data is received from master // this function is registered as an event, see setup() void receiveEvent(int howMany) { while (1 < Wire.available()) { // loop through all but the last char c = Wire.read(); // receive byte as a character Serial.print(c); // print the character } int x = Wire.read(); // receive byte as an integer Serial.println(x); // print the integer } And this is what I last tried to upload to the Pro-Mini to attempt to see anything come through on the serial monitor of the Uno: #define INTRO //#define DEBUG #define MINDEBUG //#define INCLUDESOFTWARESERIAL #define I2CDEV_SERIAL_DEBUG #include "Wire.h" #include "I2Cdev.h" #include "MPU6050_6Axis_MotionApps20.h" //#include "SoftwareSerial.h" #include <avr/wdt.h> //#include <PinChangeInt.h> // ================================================================ // === Define Timing Variables === // ================================================================ unsigned long loopTimeTotal = 0;

Serial.print(devStatus); Serial.println(F(")")); #endif } } Now, the main change I added to try and test if it was working is this part that is found in the mpuInitializeSetup() function at the end of my code: // set up in bypass mode mpu.setI2CMasterModeEnabled(0); mpu.setI2CBypassEnabled(1); Wire.beginTransmission(0x1E); Wire.write("Test"); Wire.endTransmission(); mpu.setI2CBypassEnabled(0); I was hoping that by doing this, I would see the words "Test" on the serial monitor of the Uno. For the physical connections, I have the SCL and SDA lines of the Uno connected to the XCL and XDA lines of the mpu6050. The SCL and SDA lines of the mpu6050 are in turn connected to the SCL and SDA lines of the Pro-Mini. I am getting good data from the mpu6050, just not having any luck using the Uno as a slave device. If anyone has some suggestions or advice about this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Hi, I tried MPU_DMP6.ino and it compiles without error for UNO (haven’t tested on real board), but I am using DUE board and the sketch won’t compile for the arduino due board. Could you please tell me why I am getting this error, will be helpful. MPU6050_DMP6.ino: In function 'void setup()': MPU6050_DMP6:165: error: 'TWBR' was not declared in this scope If I put it as a comment then it compiles without error. but still dont know if it will actually work or not. Thank you.
