4-In-1 Orientation Sensor

today I wanna buy the ez-robot 4-in-1 Orientation Sensor. at the moment I use another MPU6050 and it works but there is a problem..

after two minutes EZ-Robot says:

Comm Err: System.IO.IOException
System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a certain period, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond
    at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.Receive (Byte [] buffer, Int32 offset, Int32 size, SocketFlags SocketFlags)

29.04.2015 11:05 - ?
29.04.2015 11:05 - Disconnected

..and crashes

I use:

ControlCommand("MPU6050", Init)


ControlCommand("MPU6050", RunOnce)



for the updating..

If I change the sleeping time to (1000) the EZ-Board crashes in 5 minutes.

Now I want to use your Original-Sensor and I must wait for it.. because I dont know is this a Software or Sensor-Prob. we will see.
So actually I have a new question:

Can you post the script for JD to stand up If he's falling over ?

thanks a lot

So it works, but then stops? You are getting data from your sensor? Which MPU6050 product do you have specifically?
I use a Arduino MPU6050 Sensor.. Yes, it works fine and I can read all data. but after a few minutes the ez-controller freeze. I cannot connect again and must restart the controller.

Check wiring. If the I2C has an issue the EZ-B will freeze up - this is by design of the main processor manufacturers. If there is an intermittent fault on the wiring to the sensor this may cause the problem described.

Can you provide a link to it?

I use this one at the moment..

Gyro and ACC sensor is MPU6050 + High precision Barometer MS5611
+ 3-axis digital compass HMC5883l - all in one

tonight I check the wiring.
There is a JD project called JD ACCELEROMETER - Download that from the EZ-Cloud and it is setup to use that sensor.

The reason you are receiving that error is due to the i2c of your arduino sensor not having proper pull-ups and perhaps incorrect wiring sizes. There are dozens of variables which cause i2c to not work. i2c is a very fragile protocol and requires specific research into the wiring, resistors, and capacitors - it's not as simple as just connecting wires.

Ours will be shipping very soon - they are being manufactured as we speak.

@ DJ

Im not using a mobile phone for robotics..
a notebook, only.

it will be great to add the script to the Windows EZ-Software Scripts.

Hello @Smarty

The EZ-Cloud project files are also available for you to access through a Windows notebook. Just select File -> EZ-Cloud "Open" -> JD with MPU6050 Accelerometer.

perfect, thank you :-)

The EZ-Board is rebooting or freezing after a few minutes - but 10 minutes it works fine. I bought the original EZ-Robot Sensor last month and I hope it will be arriving at my home quickly.

I write an update after I get the new sensor

now I have the original 4-in-1 Orientation Sensor and the same problem!
the sensor is working a few minutes and then ez-robot cut the w-lan connection. the controller needs a restart. -.-

I know before you used a MPU6050. Below is the link for the MPU9150, 4 in 1 sensor. It mentions that there is a "JD with MPU9150 project" for this sensor in the EZ-Cloud. Hopefully it will help.
