Sensor data transmitted as OSC over Wifi – Huzzah ESP8266

Huzzah ESP8266 with MPU6050 accelerometer, Arduino IDE.

The previous post featured a code for the LSM9DSO0 accelerometer in combination with the Huzzah ESP8266. Since the LSM9DSO0 is not produced anymore, here is an alternative: Using the MPU-6050 acceleration and gyroscope sensor. Thanks for Jennifer Sykes for suggesting this alternative and assembling and testing the code.

Fritzing project – Huzzah ESP8266 – MPU-6050

When setting the Target IP in the ESP code to the network settings of Parat+, moving, tilting and rotating the sensor will send the sensor reading as OSC bundles (i.e. packages of separate OSC messages) to Parat+. These will appear as Source Faders:

/esp/accelX
/esp/accelY
/esp/accelZ

/esp/gyroX
/esp/gyroY
/esp/gyroZ

Use the range learn functions of the Parat+ Source faders to calibrate the data streams to the movements you wish to use.

Connect the ‘Value controlled by Source’ in the Fader Edit view of any Parat+ Fader to have that OSC and MIDI controller controlled by your sensor.
