David Grayson has put together a thorough tutorial on how to use the MinIMU-9 V2 with a raspberry pi to make a real-time orientation display. Raspberrypi.org breaks down the project details for us here:
You’ll find IMUs in devices like model aeroplanes and VR headsets. This one talks to I²C, making it an ideal fit for the Raspberry Pi – all that was needed for this project was the IMU, a Pi and a few jumper cables.
David Grayson has hooked it up to the Pi’s I²C bus and has built some software (available on GitHub) that uses the Raspberry Pi’s powerful 3D graphics to impose a visualisation process on the raw data in real time. This means that you can display on screen exactly what position the IMU is in, on the fly.
