UPDATED GUIDE: Adafruit BNO055 Absolute Orientation Sensor @adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #WebSerial #GoogleChrome

The Adafruit BNO055 Absolute Orientation Sensor guide has been updated to include usage instructions for the WebSerial Visualizer. The Adafruit 3D Model Viewer page has also been updated to automatically display the calibration information if it is present to assist you with easily calibrating the BNO055. The page was originally designed to work with boards with a built-in 9-DoF sensor such as the CLUE and Bluefruit Feather Sense and now will work with the BNO055 as well.

That raw data is all fine and good, but we want to see what they mean in 3D space, right? Traditionally, a Processing sketch would be used to read the serial data and convert it to a 3D rotation – but thanks to Web Serial API we can use any Chrome browser – a lot easier than installing Processing!

First wire up a BNO055 to your board exactly as shown on the previous pages using the I2C interface.  Here’s an example of wiring a Feather M0 to the sensor with I2C…

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.
