Motion (use with mDesigner)

From Microduino Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The motion sensor is a 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer. It is capable of detecting the angle and angular rate in the yaw, pitch, and roll axes (aircraft principal axes). Along with acceleration on the difference axes. Support for this module is found in mDesigner.

This module has a similar name to a Microduino / mCookie Motion module. They are NOT the same modules.
mDesigner does not support the Microduino / mCookie Motion module.

Motion - Read Angle / Angular Rate on Axis

This block reads the angle or angular rate on the selected axis (yaw, pitch, or roll).

MDesigner Motion Read Angle AngularRate.png
  • Angle / Angular Rate - measure the angle or angular rate.
  • Angle - the angle of the selected axis.
  • Angular Rate - the rate in which the angle is changing on the selected axis.
  • Axis - axis to measure -- yaw, pitch, or roll (see right).
