void setup() {
  Wire.begin();
  Wire.beginTransmission(MPU_addr);

  Wire.write(0); // set to zero (wakes up the MPU-6050)

  GyZ=Wire.read()<<8|Wire.read();  // 0x47 (GYRO_ZOUT_H) & 0x48 (GYRO_ZOUT_L)
  Serial.print("AcX = "); Serial.print(AcX);
  Serial.print(" | AcY = "); Serial.print(AcY);
  Serial.print(" | AcZ = "); Serial.print(AcZ);
  Serial.print(" | Tmp = "); Serial.print(Tmp/340.00+36.53);  //equation for temperature in degrees C from datasheet
  Serial.print(" | GyX = "); Serial.print(GyX);
  Serial.print(" | GyY = "); Serial.print(GyY);
  Serial.print(" | GyZ = "); Serial.println(GyZ);
  delay(333);
}

Serial Monitor output:

AcX = -1 | AcY = -1 | AcZ = -1 | Tmp = 36.53 | GyX = -1 | GyY = -1 | GyZ = -1
AcX = -1 | AcY = -1 | AcZ = -1 | Tmp = 36.53 | GyX = -1 | GyY = -1 | GyZ = -1

  • You need to initialize the device and take it out of sleep mode first. – Gerben Jan 3 '18 at 11:22

    A return value of -1 means that the Wire.read is reading an empty buffer. In other words: you are not connected to the mpu6050. Try a i2c scanner first: playground.arduino.cc/Main/I2cScanner – Jot Jan 3 '18 at 11:41
  • Thanks Jot..! you point out the problem. My MPU was not connected to the arduino. Actually in arduino's MCU i2c module was not working well. – bandejiya Jan 4 '18 at 6:27

I found that there was a communication problem between MPU and Arduino which I found using code given in this link http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/I2cScanner . Then I found thought problem Must be in MPU or arduino and problem was in Arduino MCU. So after changing the Arduino MCU it worked
