Razor IMU - 9 Degrees of Freedom - Has anyone used it?
September 16, 2011
I wonder if anyone has any experiance with the Razor IMU with 9 Degrees of Freedom from sparkfun. Is is value for money?
I have found one here http://proto-pic.co.uk/9-degrees-of-freedom-razor-imu-ahrs-compatible/ at what seems a very reasonable price as far as UK prices are concerned (£72 + 6 shipping). Some places are mad expensive, up to almost £120...
Anyway, still in the vein of attempting to give my bot some more brains than simply non-collision movement I am looking at gyros, accelerometers and magnometers. Hoping to figure out a fairly accurate method of DR.
Does it make sence buying something like this with the 3 different components on one board + a dedicated AVR 328 processor or would I be better off buying the components seperately? Arguments either way would be appreciated.
