  1. Hello, I'm getting useful data from the MPU but it occasionally freezes at random. I haven't changed any of the code from here https://github.com/jrowberg/i2cdevlib/tree/master/Arduino/MPU6050and I believe I've got it connected right: Arduino Uno vcc - 3.3v gnd - gnd scl - A5 sda - A4 int - digital 2 Any suggestions as to how to fix this? When this happens I either have to reset the uno or the serial connection to get it working again. Also when set flat on a table the Yaw figure creeps slowly upward. Any idea why this is? The same happens when its on the back of my hand (where I'm planning to mount it). Thanks
  2. Hello! I'm trying to log the acceleration measured by a MPU6050 on a GY-521 breakout board on a microSD card using a microSD shield made by Sparkfun. Because the MPU6050_DMP6 sketch from the MPU6050 library of Jeff Rowberg (also using his I2Cdev lib) and the dataLogger sketch from the SDfat library both worked very good (when runnning alone) i thought i could combine them to achieve my goal. I deleted the (for my use) unnecessary code and instead of printing the acceleration data to the serial monitor i print it to the logfile. But this is not working so great. The sketch stops working completely random. Sometimes it runs for a couple of minutes, sometimes only for a few seconds. When it freezes i have to reset the arduino and it runs again for some time. I just can't figure out what the problem is. Here is what i already tried: 1) check the connections SD shield is just put on top of the arduino MPU -> Arduino VCC -> 5V GND -> GND SCL -> Analog 5 SDA -> Analog 4 INT -> Digital 2 solder points look good 2) check memory usage don't remember the exact value but it was stable and there was enough free memory 3) a LOT of different approaches how to handle the data all with pretty much the same results, i will spare you the details because mostly it was "try and error" Here is the basic sketch i described: ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// #define BUTTON_PIN 4 ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////Includes, Constants and Objects for datalogging//////////////////// #include <SdFat.h> // SD chip select pin.
