The BNO055 absolute orientation sensor is an amazing device. It integrates an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit microcontroller in a single package. Not only can you read the sensors at the same time, but a fusion algorithm running on the on-board microcontroller analyzes all the measured data and calculates the orientation of the device in space.
Here are 5 features that make the BlueDot BNO055 9-Axis IMU such an amazing board:
The BlueDot BME680 Environmental and Gas Sensor not only allows you measure temperature, humidity, pressure and altitudewith an Arduino, but with the integrated Metal Oxide (MOX) Gas Sensor you can measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air. The Metal Oxide-based sensor detects VOCs by adsorption on its sensitive layer and its resistance changes with the VOC concentration (the higher the VOC concentration, the lower the output resistance and vice-versa). The raw-signal is therefore a resistance value in ohms.
Volatile organic compounds are typically found in building materials, printers, solvents, paints, gasoline and many household products. The long-term exposure to VOCs can be harmful to our health and since we spend so much time indoors (homes and offices), it is important to find the source and reduce the concentration of VOCs in indoor environments.
The BME680 sensor is the most recent development from Bosch Sensortec, the world's leading manufacturer of MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Systems).
The BlueDot BME280 Weather Station is the best way to measure temperature, humidity, pressure and altitude with an Arduino. Being developed for mobile applications, the BME280 sensor from BOSCH combines high precision and low power consumption in a very small package.
Here are 5 features that make the BlueDot BME280 Weather Station very easy to use:
