New Arduino 9 Axes Motion Shield
Our brand new Arduino Bosch Sensortec 9 Axes Sensor Shield was launched during the Embedded World 2015 Exhibition and Conference, hosted as every year in Nuremberg.
Around 900 exhibitors from over 35 countries were present.
And among those, also ATMEL was there with a huge booth, showcasing the newest proposals in the IoT and embedded world, and with a robot attracting everybody’s attention:
The Robot was catching everybody’s eye and, considering that about 25,500 participants visited the halls and checked all the new proposals and latest designs and modern accessories on the outlook of the embedded technology and its development in various sectors, we can say it was a very good presentation.
We got at the Fair and, although we expected something big, it was REALLY big! Amazing how many new products and ideas were shown on Nuremberg’s Fair grounds.
At ATMEL booth our new Arduino Bosch Sensortec 9 Axes Motion Shield was being introduced to the greater public: its first appearance was made in one of the most important shows on earth in the embedded sector.
Bosch Sensortec representative was there, showcasing this new tiny jewel, born out of the cooperation of Arduino s.r.l. and Bosch, featuring the BNO055 Intelligent 9-axis absolute orientation sensor from Bosch Sensortec, capable of measuring a number of special analog data and transforming them into digital information to allow their analysis.
And ATMEL dedicated an entire wall to Arduino’s products, and, again, among them, was the new shield:
Can you spot the shield on the wall?
Well…it’s a jewel, as we wrote earlier, in the fact that it is based on the BNO055 absolute orientation sensor from Bosch Sensortec, featuring 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
