  • Hi Jen, How do I set up the Circuitry to ensure that 2 accelerometers can work at the same time?

    • Hi there, it sounds like you are looking for technical assistance. Please use the link in the banner above, to get started with posting a topic in our forums. Our technical support team will do their best to assist you. (Note: I am not sure how much of this project is within the scope of our support team.)

      That being said, this post is over 2 years old and I am not sure if the author still keeping tabs, but it looks like the accelerometer uses the I2C bus. Based on the datasheet, you would need to us a MUX and modify the provided code (we don't provide support on custom code). Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

  • I cannot SSH into my Pi when it is on battery power. I think it is failing to boot as the LED never stops flashing. Using the exact parts list given above.

  • For newbies or dabblers like me... to get the code from github enter into the terminal git clone https://github.com/jenfoxbot/ImpactForceMonitor.git then cd /ImpactForceMonitor
