on video Build an Electronic Level with MPU-6050 and Arduino


 Today we will be working with the MPU-6050 IMU, and we will use it to build an electronic level with an Arduino.

Today we will be working with the MPU-6050, a low-cost Inertial Measurement Unit, or IMU.  This device has a lot of different applications in many fields including robotics, gaming, quadcopters, and IoT devices.

The MPU-6050 has an internal gyroscope and accelerometer. It's an inexpensive device, available in several packages and modules. The module I am using is very common and has a built-0in voltage regulator so it can work with 5-volt logic.

We will start by looking at the MPU-6050 internals, as well as at the pinout of the module I am using.

Next, we will load a couple of libraries into our Arduino IDE and ruins some sample code to display Pitch, Yaw, and Roll.

After that, we will build a small project, an electronic level. Our level will display on an LCD and will also use 5 LEDs to give a good visual indication of how level the surface is.
