XLoBorg Motion and direction sensor for Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

XLoBorg top full

Timothy sent us an update from PiBorg. Today, they have released a new product called XLoBorg that offers an accelerometer and magnetometer add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. Timothy: “It’s a true plug in board, so it’s very easy to use and great for beginners :)” :

Measure movement such as bumps and shocks and determine direction from your Raspberry Pi with the XLoBorg add on board by PiBorg.

Features a 3 Axis Accelerometer and 3 Axis Magnetometer

Great for Robotics projects such as UAV’s, cars, navigation and just about anything!

Example software such as Python for the Raspberry Pi here

Datasheet, schematic and additional info here

Uses only the I2C pins of the Raspberry Pi (and power), so you have lots of free pins to connect to PicoBorg or a LedBorg, or both!

Simply plug it on to the GPIO header of your Raspberry Pi, run the software, and start sensing movement and direction!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
