Arduino USB Infrared Remote Receiver for Kodi

This project uses an Arduino Pro Micro to receive button presses from an old IR remote you might already have and sends keyboard presses via an emulated USB keyboard. I’m using this to control Kodi, but you could use it to send keyboard commands to any program. Hardware used Arduino Pro Micro, like this one … Continue reading Arduino USB Infrared Remote Receiver for Kodi

Arduino interface to MPU9250 / MPU9255 gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass

This post is a quick introduction to get an MPU9250  gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass module (so called 9 axis) connected and talking to an Arduino. I’m using a 5V Arduino Nano, because the description of this module says that it is 5V tolerant. Markings on chip is: MP92 / W864A1 / 1410   The library I … Continue reading Arduino interface to MPU9250 / MPU9255 gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass
