Inertial sensors

Is it possible to connect a accelerometer and a gyroscope simultaneously in the arduino? Please tell me how, im a newbie when it comes to gyro and accelerometer...thanks

Yes, you could even add a magnetometer and a barometer to it. I think that is called 10DOF. http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/WhatIsDegreesOfFreedom6DOF9DOF10DOF11DOF

Many digital sensors have a I2C interface. Many sensors can be connected to the same I2C. The I2C uses the "Wire" library. http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Wire

The Arduino Uno could have many sensors connected to its I2C bus, and still have many pins for sensors that have no I2C.

A MPU-6050 is very cheap on Ebay, and it contains both the accellerometer and gyro sensors.

wow, that's a good advice, Somebody told me about the possibility of Gyroscope and accelerometer connection to arduino but somehow I just want to be sure...anyway thanks a bunch XD
