This project is the first time that I have ever attempted to do any type of coding or electrical project. The point of the project is to get a 3-D image to display on a screen that will show you the real time pitch and roll angles of your vehicle and also warn you when you are close to rolling. I am using an Adafruit 9 degree of freedom sensor along with a Raspberry Pi 3 model B.
Due to my lack of knowledge in the area of coding this project was pretty difficult, but I plan to continue working on it and making minor adjustments as I learn more.

Adafruit 9-DOF Accel/Mag/Gyro+Temp Breakout Board – LSM9DS0: Add motion, direction and orientation sensing to your Arduino project with this all-in-one 9-DOF sensor. Inside the chip are three sensors, one is a classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The other is a 3-axis magnetometer that can sense where the strongest magnetic force is coming from, generally used to detect magnetic north. The third is a 3-axis gyroscope that can measure spin and twist. By combining this data you can REALLY orient yourself. (read more)
