The Arduino 9 Axes Motion Shield is based on the BNO055 absolute orientation sensor (datasheet) from Bosch Sensortec GmbH.
The BNO055 is a System in Package (SiP), integrating a triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of ±2000 degrees per second, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit microcontroller running the BSX3.0 FusionLib software.
The sensor features three-dimensional acceleration, yaw rate and magnetic field strength data each in 3 perpendicular axes.
It also provides the sensor fusion signals such as
- Euler angles
- Rotation vector
- Linear acceleration
- Gravity vector
In addition, it incorporates an intelligent interrupt engine, which allows for triggering interrupts based on
- slow or no motion recognition
- any motion (slope) detection
