Two Axis Tilt Meter Displaying Pitch and Roll Using an MPU6050 on the Raspberry Pi Pico W

In this video lesson, we demonstrate how to create a two-axis tilt meter. The device displays both the pitch and roll on an OLED. In addition to this quantitative display of tilt and roll, it also shows a carpenter’s level type visual, where a circle, or bubble moves to indicate tilt. When the circle is centered on the crosshairs, the device is flat in both axis.

For your convenience, this is the schematic we are using:

And we also include the code we developed in this lesson.


Raspberry Pi Pico W Mobile Weather Station Project

In this video lesson, we create a mobile sensorless weather station. This is a follow on from our earlier lesson, and with this class, we add a rechargeable LiPo Battery, and an OLED screen. For your convenience, we show the code below that was developed in this video.
