Part Name: HiLetgo MPU9250/6500 9-Axis 9 DOF 16 Bit Gyroscope Acceleration Magnetic Sensor 9-Axis Attitude/Gyro/Accelerator/Magnetometer Sensor Module IIC/SPI

Part Description: An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a sensing unit in the form of a board with small integrated circuits (IC) including an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and more. It is used to determine inertial measurements such as 3-axis orientation, 3-axis angular velocity, and 3-axis acceleration. The IMU in your kit communicates over I2C to your microcontroller in order to relay measurements. For more information on the exact specifications, refer to the product manufacturer’s page. IMUs are exceedingly common sensors in embedded systems and mechatronics due to their utility for measuring physical states in dynamic systems.
