9-Axis IMU LESSON 22: How to Create a Tilt Stabilized Platform with Arduino

In this Lesson we begin to work on developing a tilt stabilized platform using the BNO055 9-axis sensor, and we will take advantage of all the learning that happened in the first 22 lessons. Now though, we will be moving out of the virtual world of Vpython, and will begin working in the real world. In this lesson we focus on getting the gear together. You can go ahead and order your gear, and then next week we will begin assembling and coding. In addition to the arduino nano, and the BNO055, you will need:

You Will Need Two of These HiTEC Servos

NOTE: I am no longer recommending the MG995 four pack of servos, as I have recently gotten several bad batches, so have moved to the HiTEC linked above.

A set of Pan Tilt Brackets:

 PC Board Power Supply (If you have the ELEGOO Kit, you already have this)

Good Wall Wart Power Plug for the Power Supply (if you dont have one)

Bundle of Extra Cables

OK, get your gear ordered and we will start putting things together next week.
