Create a Digital Compass with the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Check out Part 1 of this tutorial from Mark Williams on how to build a digital compass using the Raspberry Pi:
This will be a multipart series on how to use a digital compass(magnetometer) with your Raspberry Pi.
The magnetometer used in these tutorials is a LSM303D which is on a BerryIMU. We will also point out where some of the information can be found in the Datasheet for the LSM303D. This will help you understand how the LSM303D works.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
