I'd like to use a mpu-6050 however it needs to be about 18 feet from the arduino. Will the two be able to work at this distance?
Chip like this? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11028
Only needs a few mA of power, and I2C I think can handle 6 meters if it just the 2 device so the bus capacitance is low. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%C2%B2C
Thank you! I appreciate it!
