Arduino based Tiltmeter

Arduino based Tiltmeter using MPU 6050 Accelerometer (DIY)   A tiltmeter (or inclinometer) is a sensitive meter for measurement of change in inclination angle. This project is about to design and implement digital tiltmeter that can sense the tilt from -180 to 180 degree on dual axis. Accelerometer is used as tilt sensor. Arduino UNO is used for programming and converting […]
