A Python module for accessing the MPU-6050 digital accelerometer and gyroscope on a Raspberry Pi.

Project description

A Python module for accessing the MPU-6050 digital accelerometer and gyroscope on a Raspberry Pi.

Example

Assuming that the address of your MPU-6050 is 0x68, you can read read accelerometer data like this:

>>> from mpu6050 import mpu6050

>>> sensor = mpu6050(0x68)

>>> accelerometer_data = sensor.get_accel_data()

Dependencies

Either the python-smbus or python3-smbus package, according to your Python version.

Installation

There are two ways of installing this package: via PyPi or via the git repository. Installing from the git repository insures that you have the absolute latest version installed, but this can be prone to bugs.

1. install the python-smbus package

sudo apt install python3-smbus

2a. Install this package from PyPi repository

pip install mpu6050-raspberrypi

Or:

2b. Clone the repository and run setup.py

git clone https://github.com/Tijndagamer/mpu6050.git
python setup.py install
