IMU recording using a gyro sensor and thumbdrive
Given that the US has two successes of landing a big rover on Mars via the skycrane method, an individual took great pains to see if he could either confirm to his certainty that it would work. Or rather not work. Here it is, https://hackaday.com/2021/02/25/demonstrating-the-mars-rover-pendulum-problem-with-a-drone-on-earth/ the drone is as the article says running the flight firmware that the individual created. In my case however, and why it's here in the BASIC Stamp category, is because I am interested in studying the effects of vertical movement.
It would be a Gyro sensor such as the
https://parallax.com/product/gyroscope-module-3-axis-l3g4200d/ and it would be recording to the FTDI based Datalogger that the company sold several years earlier, and thumbdrive.
Right now I am not concerned about the drone, I am more concerned about working out how to grok the idea behind having the sensed movement from the IMU/Gyro to the attached thumbdrive via that unusual widget.
