This is awesome, and probably just what i need!
I'm planning to create a gyroscopic platform on which i will mount a GoPro camera or a Contour camera. I will be mounting this onto a motorbike on an actual race track, so it will go through some pretty intense forces. Then i want to compensate the camera angles using e few servos. I only need to compensate for the pitch and roll at this time.
I have experience with arduino's and the coding but im not familiar with the gyro and accelerator sensors.
I do have a few questions:
Offcourse the first question is; considering the forces applied on the sensors by putting it on a motorbike. Will this still work?
and; is using a gyro and accelero enough to fully remove the drift or will i also need the magnetometer (i need the platform to remain absolutely level to the human eye)?
and; are the resulting values usable to compensate using servo's?
i will probably be using this board with my arduino:https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10121
Thanks in advance,
