Chapter 4 Exploring Motion Sensors on the Arduino 101

From activity tracking monitors to optical image stabilization in cameras, the applications of motion sensing are endless. In this chapter, you will be exploring how the Arduino 101 can be used to detect and measure motion in a three-dimensional space.

Inertial Measurement Unit

The Arduino 101 has an onboard six-axis motion sensor, also known as an inertial measurement unit (IMU). The term inertial measurement unit usually refers to a device that measures the specific force on a body by using various sensors, such as an accelerometer or a gyroscope. The Arduino 101 has a three-axis accelerometer ...
