Making a profilograph with MPU6050

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am New to all this arduino stuff and was wondering if I could get help/see if it is possible to make a profilograph survey device from a arduino and MPU 6050?


so a profilograph in a nutshell measures the floor plan every 0.5 sec in degrees which gives you data so that you can get a reading over a said distance.


so what I want to do is build a device that is self calibrating (by the click of a push button) and write the data collected from the MPU6050 to a SD card shield and also have the data displayed on a LCD screen so that I know the data is begin collected.


So in theory I would need.....


Push button = self Calibrating

Push Button = Start and Stop

SD card Shield = Data files

MPU 6050 = data collection


Note: the data has to be in degrees so that it will work with a spreadsheet I have and also a filter will have to be in place so it will give me acc readings and be a true plan of the floor.


If anyone can give me help or guidance on this (i.e Code, set up filters and the rest) I would be very greatful. 


Many Thanks.
