Measuring Roll, Pitch, and Yaw Using 3-Axis Gyro on the MPU6050

In this video lesson we describe how to measure roll, pitch, and yaw using the MPU6050. We describe the issues associated with drift in these gyros and will propose a path forward in dealing with the drift issue.

We are using the following circuit for this project:

Schematic for Creating a Tilt Meter

And this is the code we develop in today’s lesson.
