This latest article in the series explores how to use the BNO055 sensor with ESP32, ESP8266, and Arduino to achieve gyroscope high rate and any motion interrupt. The BNO055 sensor combines an accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope in one module, making it ideal for accurate orientation tracking.
An accelerometer is a tool that measures proper acceleration. Proper acceleration is the acceleration (the rate of change of velocity) of a body in its own instantaneous rest frame; this is different from coordinate acceleration, which is acceleration in a fixed coordinate system. For example, an accelerometer at rest on the surface of the Earth will measure an acceleration due to Earth’s gravity, straight upwards (by definition) of g ≈ 9.81 m/s2. By contrast, accelerometers in free fall (falling toward the center of the Earth at a rate of about 9.81 m/s2) will measure zero.
Continue the series of article about the Bosch sensor BNO055. In this part of the tutorial, we will learn how to enable the INT pin of the BNO055 and configure the accelerometer High G Interrupt. The High G Interrupt is triggered when the accelerometer detects a sudden acceleration event that exceeds a specified threshold and duration. This can be useful for detecting impacts, falls, or other sudden movements in a variety of applications.
In this article, we are going to explore the power modes of BON055 and focus on accelerometer features and management.
In this article, we are going to explore all features of BON055 and how to configure It.
This is the second article on bno055. If you need basic management, you can refer to the previous article “BNO055 accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and orientation software”, but if you need advanced management (and more complex) with interrupt, you must read this article also.
We are going to discover BNO055, a triaxial accelerometer, a triaxial gyroscope, and a triaxial geomagnetic sensor with a 32-bit cortex M0+ microcontroller in a single package.
In this first chapter, we start a basic usage.
The ADXL345 is a small, thin, ultralow power, 3-axis accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) measurement at up to ±16 g. This device works with i2c and SPI protocol and Is suitable with Arduino, esp8266, stm32, and esp32.
