BEE Board and Daisy-7 IMU-GPS module

Create your IMU inertial measurement Application in small area

This article illustrate how to read all values from Daisy-7 with BEE Board.

This module extends the BEE Board capabilities to make GPS/MEMS applications such as

  • Motion activated functions
  • Intelligent power saving for handheld devices
  • Appliances and robotics
  • Motion Control
  • IMU inertial measurement unit & AHRS
  • GPS tracking
  • Black box
  • Motion reconstruction and analysis

Application example : BlackBox

Dump DAISY-7 data in CSV file for motion reconstruction and analysis.

This example executes a dump of all data received from the DAISY-7 every 200ms on a micro SD card. We are connected one button and one led for user interface. Press button to start logging, every led blink one row are recorded in CSV file. If you hold button on startup, dump file is emptied!

To connect SD Card to W3 of BEE Board follow this guide
