Wiring S and Parallax Gyroscope Module 3-Axis L3G4200D
« on: February 09, 2012, 10:38:33 PM »
Hi! I recently found Wiring after researching into Arduino and Wiring looks much more interesting! I'm just wondering if there is a way connect a Wiring S controller to the Parallax Gyroscope Module 3-Axis L3G4200D. I saw the tutorial for Sparkfun Gyro MLX90609 and am wondering if driving the Parallax Gyroscope might be done in a similar way. Thanks!  :)

hi, here is a library from pololu that you could use with Wiring: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1272
are you using pololu's version of the gyro?, try downloading it in a folder inside your sketchbook/libraries folder, check also this tutorial for library install: http://wiki.wiring.co/wiki/Create_Libraries
THis is the github site for the library: https://github.com/pololu/L3G4200D
remember to replace the "Arduino.h" inside the L3G4200D.h file for Wiring.h. Let me know how it goes.
