In this class we will be using the Sunfounder Raspberry Pi Pico W Keppler Kit. It will make things a lot easier if we are working on identical hardware. the link below is to amazon, and is for the identical hardware I will be using in this entire class.


In this video, I will show you how to measure vertical distance by dropping the Raspberry Pi Pico W and the MPU 6050. When you drop the device, you measure how long the device experiences zero G. Then you use this number to calculate the distance your device has fallen. Enjoy!
