The BMI160 6-axis inertial motion sensor is a new product from DFRobot. It is based on Bosch BMI160 6-axis MEMS sensor which integrates 16-bit 3-axis accelerometer with ultra-low-power 3-axis gyroscope. Bosch BMI160 is designed for smartphones, tablets, wearable devices. It has built-in intelligent step-counting algorithms that can be read directly through registers. Built-in 3-axis acceleration and 3-axis gyroscope can detect running, fitness and other motion. Built-in LDO power management chip, supports 3.2~6V wide voltage power supply, and also has I2C level conversion circuit, compatible with Arduino 3.3V and 5V micro controller.

  • Projects

    Project 1. A Wristband Pedometer Based on BMI160 Motion Sensor
    Recently I bought a 6-Axis Inertial Motion Sensor from DFRobot. So it occurs to me that why not make a wristband pedometer to calculate my physical strength.
    The material you may need:

    Project 2. Light of Earth - A BMI160 gyroscope accelerometer based 3D Printing Lamp
    A light can be turned on by knocking on the table.
