The Arduino 9 Axes Motion Shield is based on the BNO055 absolute orientation sensor from Bosch Sensortec GmbH.
The BNO055 is a System in Package (SiP), integrating a triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of ±2000 degrees per second, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit microcontroller running the BSX3.0 FusionLib software.
The sensor features three-dimensional acceleration, yaw rate and magnetic field strength data each in 3 perpendicular axes.
It also provides the sensor fusion signals such as
In addition, it incorporates an intelligent interrupt engine, which allows for triggering interrupts based on
slow or no motion recognition
any motion (slope) detection
The shield is TinkerKit compatible, which means you can quickly create projects by plugging TinkerKit modules to the board.
