TiLDA Balance

I'm working on making use of the TiLDA with its MPU-6050 as the brains of a balancing platform (initially a little balance-bot but eventually a ridable Segway-like platform if all goes well). The MPU-6050 has a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, and a Digital Motion Processor(TM) (DMP) integrated into a tiny little package on the back of the badge (IC2). It can do a lot of the grunt work leaving the badge micro plenty of space and time to do the other cool stuff.

The project can be followed at my Nottinghack project page: TiLDA Balance --Michael Erskine 4 September 2014


I created a display that I use for receiving alerts from the build servers and bug tracker for the software project I work on, the TiLDA is just fed information from a Python script over serial, it does not use a great deal of the TiLDA hardware (only the GLCD, buttons and LEDs) but does work very well.

Some photos can be found on my blog and code on GitHub.

This also uses the lighter, single threaded and more conventional Arduino style framework I wrote for the TiLDA: Cirno
