Resources and Going Further
Hopefully that info dump was enough to get you rolling with the LSM9DS0. If you need any more information, here are some more resources:
- Schematic (PDF)
- EAGLE Files (ZIP)
- LSM9DS0 Datasheet (PDF) -- This datasheet covers everything from the hardware and pinout of the IC, to the register mapping of the gyroscope and accelerometer/magnetometer.
- Arduino Library
- GitHub Repo
- SFE Product Showcase
Now that you've got the LSM9DS0 up-and-running, what project are you going to incorporate motion-sensing into? Need a little inspiration? Check out some of these tutorials!
- Getting Started With the RedBot -- The RedBot is a great entry-level robotics platform. It'd be really neat to see what could be done with an LSM9DS0 connected to it.
- Dungeons and Dragons Dice Gauntlet -- This project uses an accelerometer to sense a "rolling the dice" motion. You could swap in the LSM9DS0 to add more functionality -- like compass-based damage multipliers!
- Leap Motion Teardown -- An IMU sensor is cool, but image-based motion sensing is the future. Check out this teardown of the miniature-Kinect-like Leap Motion!
