Using state-of-the-art IMU (BNO080), XBee module, and an Arduino chip, the MV100 Wireless system provides the best movement sensing solution for your projects in areas of robotics, VR/AR, wearable, healthcare, machine monitoring, industrial control, and etc.
Unique Values to Customers
• A complete solution including IMU sensor, Microprocessor, wireless module and USB serial data communication in one unit leads to simplified system integration and faster time to market
• Size optimized for wearable applications based on ergonomics design;
• XBee module interface integrated on board, plug in the XBee module and transmit the sensor data wirelessly (XBee modules are supplied separately);
• The Popular Arduino system with open source program examples accelerates the development;
The device integrates the best IMU, BNO080, from Bosch. It provides the 9-axis inertial measurement, as well as the absolute orientation with an accuracy of 2 degree. The device has the on-board microprocessor, atmega328, that can be easily programmed using Arduino. The USB data communication system is also integrated for easy programming and data communication. Battery interfaces are provided for your prototype projects.
a. Getting data from a USB cable
This step is straightforward. The device has integrated everything for you. Just get a micro-USB cable, connect it to a PC. Open a terminal for serial communication, (if you have Arduino, you can use the one there. It will make your future development easier.) set the baud rate to 115200, and you will see data streaming. The default data is the quaternion vector, indicating the real time orientation/rotation.
You can program the device using Arduino. Here is some firmware examples to help you get started. When you are trying to download the program to the IMU board, make sure you select the board settings as "Board: Arduino Pro or Pro Mini", "Processor: Atmega328P(3.3V, 8MHz)"
