Motion sensor and motor control device help

  1. Mar 15, 2012 #1
    Hi, I am currently designing a stabilisation device for use in water. The general idea is using an inertial motion sensor to detect the orientation and propellors to correct it. I have very little knowledge in this area and was wondering whether I can use a phidget to achieve a wireless feedback system from the sensor to motors to correct the orientation. I have been looking at stepper controllers and motion sensors so far but I'm not 100% sure what the best solution is and how it all fits together. I don't know which components I would need to build such a system or if it is at all possible.

    Thank you for any help!
