    (MPU6500 - accelerater+gyroscope) How to improve the movement by using this?

    To all,

    I am doing a project which is a satellite tracking system. The project aims to make the antenna mounted on the system always pointing to the satellite.
    Besides, I know how to do the tracking part but the movement of antenna isn't smooth (fluctuation). I found that the accelerator plus gyroscope can improve
    that movement. I also found from some source code of MPU6500 that MPU6500 will show the x,y,z value for gyroscope and x,y,z value for accelerator. However,
    I still not figure out how to use those information to improve the movement of the tracking.

    Could anyone give me some idea or related information about it?

    Regards,
    Andy

    I think,what you need to work on,is the accuracy of the antenna pointing in the correct direction of the satellite as it passes overhead.Try to use a stepper motor for the antenna,which has a lesser step angle,than the one you are currently using.That should give you better accuracy and probably,no fluctuations as well.
