A better way of debugging sensors with a realtime plotter

Debugging sensors on a microprocessor can be a hassle and the most used approach is to output the sensor values to a serial monitor. I made a realtime plotting tool which is a better and more visual way of doing the same thing. I created this software to debug an Arduino Due on my self-balancing robot.

In the video you can see that the robot stays at roughly the same spot on the floor and handles a lighter push without any problem. To achieve this I have two … Read more
