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.
Category: Magnetometer (Triaxial magnetic field)
A magnetometer is a device that measures magnetic field or magnetic dipole moment. Some magnetometers measure the direction, strength, or relative change of a magnetic field at a particular location. A compass is one such device, one that measures the direction of an ambient magnetic field, in this case, the Earth’s magnetic field. Other magnetometers measure the magnetic dipole moment of a magnetic material such as a ferromagnet, for example by recording the effect of this magnetic dipole on the induced current in a coil.
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 sensor GY-273 QMC5883L clone HMC5883L magnetometer for Arduino, esp8266, and esp32 is cheap and reasonably precise but needs some check for the clone version.
