ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Working of accelerometer+gyroscope with Arduino. MPU6050 is the module for accelerometer and gyromscope (combined). The project is mainly focused on getting the orientation and calculating the number of steps taken by user who is carrying the module. MPU6050 has both accelerometer and gyroscope (MEMS).
WHAT IS MEMS ?
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS, also written as micro-electro-mechanical, MicroElectroMechanical or microelectronic and microelectromechanical systems and the related micromechatronics) is the technology of very small devices; it merges at the nano-scale into nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and nanotechnology.
MEMS are separate and distinct from the hypothetical vision of molecular nanotechnology or molecular electronics. MEMS are made up of components between 1 to 100 micrometres in size (i.e. 0.001 to 0.1 mm), and MEMS devices generally range in size from 20 micrometres to a millimetre (i.e. 0.02 to 1.0 mm). They usually consist of a central unit that processes data (the microprocessor) and several components that interact with the surroundings such as microsensors.
