The USB Converter Serial (FT232RL) Rev1 has as its objective to convert USB to Serial communication. You can use it for communication (including programming) Microcontrollers (eg ATmega328 present in Garagino Rev 1), or make the communication with devices such as sensors and xbee modules, Bluetooth, among others.
Hardly we found devices with Serial ports (Ex. PC's) available today. Then you must use a USB / Serial converter for communication between the peripheral and the PC or other equipment using USB port.
Serial communication is done by:
Garagino is an Arduino UNO Compatible board developed by GarageLab team for makers who want smaller and cheaper prototypes.
A master battery disconnect switch is a lever-operated battery cutoff switch that will disconnect power for the battery circuit.
The InvenSense MPU-6050 sensor contains an accelerometer and a gyroscope in a single chip. It is very accurate, this sensor is used in self balancing robots, drones, smartphones, etc. The sensor uses the I2C-bus to interface with microcontroller.
