Topic: Capturing Arm Movement with MMA8451  (Read 379 times) previous topic - next topic


Currently trying to complete a project using an Arduino UNO and accelerometer MMA8451 to control a robot arm. I am struggling to develop a consistent algorithm to collect accurate movement of the accelerometer. Any suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated.


If I recall correctly, to control movement requires both an accelerometer and a gyro. And you still can't get very accurate result. Your calculated position will deteriorate in time. Better position control is achieved with stepper motors and servos. And limit switches.


If you ask for help and write 'u' instead of 'you' because you think it's convenient, I will write 'no' instead of 'yes'. For same reasons.
