Sensor-Based Tracking Software by @InvenSense Improves Fitness Apps #WearableWednesday
In a press release Tuesday, InvenSense announced the release of their sensor-based fitness tracking software service Coursa Sports:
The Coursa Sports SDK uses advanced algorithms that take sensor data from the mobile device gyroscope, accelerometer, and barometric pressure sensor to generate an inertial tracking data flow that is combined with GNSS data. The addition of the inertial tracking system, together with GNSS, improves customer experience by increasing the continuity and accuracy of the fitness data when GNSS signals are weak or unavailable.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
