Awesome skydiving robot made with Arduino! #arduino #robotics

Thanks to Austin for sending in this great student project using Adafruit products! We can’t wait to see the final result!

The freefall robot guys are doing some bedroom testing and their device is “looking awesome”.

MPL3115A2 – I2C Barometric Pressure/Altitude/Temperature Sensor: This pressure sensor from Freescale is a great low-cost sensing solution for precision measurement of barometric pressure and altitude. The MPL3115A2 has a typical 1.5 Pascal resolution, which can resolve altitude at 0.3 meters (compare to the BMP180 which can do 0.17m). It has some upsides compared to the BMP180, such as interrupt outputs for ultra-low power usage, and its also a heck of a lot easier to read altitude with a built in altimeter calculation – no calibration reading and calculating required. As a bonus, there’s even a fairly good temperature sensor with ±1°C typical accuracy (±3°C max). Read more.
