Now available on: http://www.danslateteamartin.com/gyroscope

Perfect for FPV head tracking, robotics, movement control and why not video games. Based on Arduino Pro Mini card with ATmega328P microcontroller, the 3 axis motion sensor gyroscope allows you to track the movement of the head or arm and replicate it to servos. For Do It Yourself (DIY) home project lover who dreams of doing a head tracking system FPV themselves cheaply. It is available in wireless, into an overall choices that can certainly meet your needs. This system has been specially designed for DIY in electronics or robotics for students to explore electronics, who want their own system, but are less comfortable with advanced programming of accelerometers. You can use one or more axes (X, Y, Z) independently. Depending on your needs.

  • Iota

This basic wired model, offers the possibility to reverse the direction of the servos to serve as a stabilizer. Small and lightweight, Its dimension is only 1 by 3 inches long and it fits easily into any type of project.

  • Z-Ita set (wireless)

The Z-Ita set includes the Zita wireless sensor/transmitter with a range of 30 to 50 feet. Its battery life is over 2 hours with a 45 minute charge. The set also includes the Ita receiver, which transmits the received signals to the servos. It offers a choice of 16 channels in the frequency of 2.4Ghz. This allows to use more than one set nearby. It also offers the possibility to reverse the direction of the signals to fit your needs.

Need even more possibilities?

You want to use the accelerometer signals to another type of application? Get the Iota or Z-ita set and plug it into your Arduino microcontroller according to the video and use the sketch file provided (which you can adapt to your needs), and look for new possibilities to suit your needs.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge was of course to be able to interpret the signals from the accelerometer and transform them into interpretable signals for the servos. Another great challenge is drawing the PCB and packaging all in small and flexible setup for the DIY customer.
