9-Axis IMU LESSON 10: Making a Tilt Compensated Compass with Arduino

In this lesson we show you how to build a demo tilt compensated compass using the BNO055 9-axis sensor.  We go through some trigonometry to help you understand conceptually how the device works.

To play along at home, you will need an Arduino Nano, and an Adafruit BNO055 Inertial Measurement Sensor.

The code below is provided for your convenience. It is intended only for bench top demos, and should not be used in real applications. Just for fun, not for drones, or other actual control applications.
