Some Arduino boards come with an embedded Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in them. To easily access read data from the IMU, you can use a library.

Find an IMU library for other boards
Here are some tips to find an IMU library for a non-Arduino board:
- Check the technical specifications for the board and determine the name of the IMU sensor. Use a search engine to look for compatible libraries.
- Go to search.arduino.cc and search for “imu” or a specific name in the Documentation tab.
- Contact your reseller or the board manufacturer.
