ESP32 Thing Motion Shield Hookup Guide
The ESP32 Thing Motion Shield is a versatile addition to our ESP32 Thing. Small movements can be detected with the tried and true LSM9DS1 IMU, large movements and time can be detected with the addition of a GPS sensor. There’s a port for the GP-20U7 module, and breakout pins for any serial device. Data can be easily logged by adding a microSD card to the slot. And did I mention there’s a general purpose LED? It works quite well to display GPS lock state!
