This module is equipped with INVENSENSE MPU-6050 chip which is a 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope sensor that you can use with Arduino to completely sense the movement and gestures of the motion.
GY-521 module is a breakout board for the MPU-6050 MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems) that features a 3-axis gyroscope, a 3-axis accelerometer, a digital motion processor (DMP), and a temperature sensor. The digital motion processor can be used to process complex algorithms directly on the board.
