Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer&Gyroscope

Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer&Gyroscope is a cost-effective Grove interfaced and integrated sensor combination of 3-axis digital accelerometer and 3-axis digital gyroscope.

With a serious low power consumption digital chip LSM6DS3(datasheet) and power supply regulator inside, it features high sensitivity, green tech and low noise interference. It can be configured to different sensitivity levels of acceleration and different angular rate measurement range. Provided with detailed SDK, it can make the prototyping process quicker and easier.

This product can be used for different applications for tilt, motion, and tap sensings, such as robotics, IoT devices and consumer electronic devices.

Get started

Material required


Refer to following guides to build an appropriate IDE:

Note that we have chosen Seeeduino and it is compatible with Arduino in this case. So you can also use Arduino board instead.

Getting Started on Windows

Getting Started on Mac OS X

Hardware connections

Note that plug Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer&Gyroscope to I2C interface on Grove - Base shield. Connect power supply with USB cable.

A little demo

Download library for Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer&Gyroscope. Refer to Guide to use demos downloaded from Seeed's Github for quicker flashing your code to main controller board. There are three demo examples in total in sub directory examples.
