I am a maintenance electrician and want to show how important it is to monitor motor health by monitoring vibration of the motor itself while running under load. I'm wanting to take an arduino UNO and an MPU6050 accelerometer, place them in a box an attach it to the motor frame. Eventually, after I get the actual sensor operational, I want to use and ethernet shield and put it on our network, develop some type of graph to be able to monitor in real-time remotely from an office, control room, etc.
I cant seem to find any type of consistent information that someone has already accomplished this. Would anyone be able to provide some input on how I need to proceed? What type of code to start with? Do I have the correct hardware? What would be the first step in designing a page to monitor said sensor?
