A Fitness Tracker for Pets @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
It’s fun to have pets, but they do demand a lot of attention. Yes, even cats. Responsible pet owners know that regular play and exercise isn’t just a fun part of owning a furry friend, it’s essential for mental and physical health. Here’s a project that will help track pet activity from Mithun Das via hackster.io:
Why should human have all the fitness trackers? Our pets deserve more to stay active. I am using XIAO BLE Sense which a tiny microcontroller which is equipped with a powerful Nordic nRF52840 MCU, designed in a Bluetooth 5.0 module, built around 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 CPU. It has 6 Axis IMU which is used to predict the activity such as rest, walk and run.
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!
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.
