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

You need to have the python-smbus package installed.

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.
