Very cool that you’re building a balancing bot. Can you post a photo of your base?
I’ve been playing around with a 9axis IMU from sparkfun, maybe I’ll build another balancing bot with that.
I believe the accelerometer should read positive when bot is tilted forwards.
Motor 1 should be Left.
Yes, 200 is close enough.
I would try out the MMA8452 and see what values it’s returning. If it really is padding the LSB, then you can shift 4 to the right, that should take care of sign as well.
