Hello 朝露映曦,

I have never used an IMU with Edison, nevertheless, the Edison has several interfaces that you can use to use to interact with such sensors. You could try to find a sensor that communicates through SPI, I2C, UART, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or any other of the Edison's interfaces.

In http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005913.html?wapkw=shield+testing+r... Intel® Galileo and Intel® Edison Board Shield Testing Report for... you can find all the sensors and shields that have been validated for Edison. There you can find sensors such as those you mentioned (gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer) that have been tested with Edison, why don't you check this document, it may help you.

Peter.
