MPU-9250 and Arduino (9-Axis IMU)

Introduction

This post presents a simple example of how to interface the MPU-9250 with an Arduino board. The breakout board used here is the IMU 9DOF MPU9250 breakout board manufactured by Drotek. The following video shows the result of this interface with the Sebastian Madgwick‘s AHRS algorithm.
