Raspberry Pi single board mini PC users might be interested in a new sensor developed especially for the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC called the BerryIMU.
The Raspberry Pi BerryIMU sensor is equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer that is tailored for the Raspberry Pi. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the BerryIMU project and see it in action.
IMUs can be found in electronic devices such as quadcopters, smartphones, Segways and Wii remotes to name a few and are used to sense movement and orientation within the devices. Mark Williams creator of the Raspberry Pi BerryIMU explains a little more about his creation :
“BerryIMU is an inertial measurement unit, or IMU, that measures and reports on velocity, orientation and gravitational forces, using a combination of an accelerometer, gyroscope and a magnetometer.
BerryIMU is specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi and is designed to take some of the complexity out of IMUs and to try and make them more enjoyable to use. BerryIMU includes the latest and greatest sensor ICs. BerryIMU is powered off the Raspberry Pi 3.3v pin and is compatible with all Raspberry Pi models.”
