Thanks for your interest in the Intel Edison platform.
I highly recommend you to take a look at the UPM Sensor/Actuator repository for MRAA, there you will find a variety of sensor types that you may use in your project, here is the website: https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm and on this other site you can find a list of the UPM libraries that can be used: https://iotdk.intel.com/docs/master/upm/modules.html.
In addition to that, I also found some threads about using the Intel Edison mini-breakout board with some sensors that you may be interested in:
- MPU6050 on Edison's breakoutboard through I2C-6 – Accelerometer + Gyro Sensor
- SDA and SCL voltage from MPU6050 IMU – Accelerometer + Gyro Sensor
- Interfacing ultrasonic sensor with the Intel Edison – Ultrasonic sensor HC-SR04
- BMP Atmospheric Pressure Sensor – You can find this example on the UPM repository as well
Hope you find this information useful.
