CE351 Lab 5 2020 Fall
Accelerometer - MPU6050 and the I2C Communication Protocol
Name: Audra Benally
In this lab, we learned about the I2C
communication protocol used to connect master and slave devices. The
protocol allows one master to be connected to and work with multiple
slaves using two wires: the SDA and SCL connections. The lab also goes
on to show how to use a MPU6050 accelerometer and gyroscope chip to
detect three-dimentional movement. Unfortunately, because I have not
been to the school in awhile, I was not able to get the MPU6050 chip
and therefore was unable to complete this lab as instructed.

I really enjoyed learning about
the communication protocols. It's neat learning about how these little
chips communicate with eachother. It's cool to know that it's pretty
similar to how people communicate with addresses and read or write
information. I'm sorry I was not able to finish the lab. I hope this is
enough to not get a 0.
