Topic: Sampling Frequency for MPU 6050 (Read 99 times) previous topic - next topic

vrutang

Hi..
I am using MPU 6050 with Arduino MEGA 2560. I found that the sampling rate of serial monitor is about 25 Hz. So I was wondering that whether we can the sampling rate of serial monitor data or not?
If yes then can anyone please help me to explain how can we change the sampling frequency from 25 Hz to 100 Hz?

Thanks.

Post you code. Your probably only using 9600 baud for serial where 115200 would be 12x times quicker. Print less data to serial as well to speed things up.
I might seem like an idiot but remember it takes one to know one.

Yes, I am using a code of Jeff Rowberg  and in that baud rate of 9600. So should i just change the baud rate from 9600 to 115200. So it would be great if you can explain the relationship with baud rate and sampling frequency.

Thanks.

To make you code readable you should post it within code tags (see item 7 in this page).

Baud rate specifies how fast serial data is sent/received, the higher the baud rate the faster the speed.
Your code has a baud rate of 9600 so most of the delay is probably the time spent waiting for serial data to be sent once the serial buffer fills. Speed up the baud rate and the serial buffer will empty quicker as the data is being sent faster.
I might seem like an idiot but remember it takes one to know one.

Oh. Sorry about that.

Thanks for your suggestion.
