How to create an inclinometer using a Raspberry Pi and an IMU #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Hack a day posted this great project from ozzmaker.com.

This guide covers how to use an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with a Raspberry Pi to create an inclinometer, just like the type you will find in a 4WD.

A prerequisite for this guide is to have a gyro and accelerometer from an IMU already up and running on your Raspberry Pi. A guide to interfacing an IMU with a Raspberry Pi can be found here.

We will be covering some basic SDL which will be used to produce our graphics.

The IMU used in this guide is the BerryIMU. However, other IMUs or accelerometers and gyroscopes can be used.. Eg Pololu MinIMU, Adafruit IMU and Sparkfun IMUs
