Yocto 3D Y3DMK001

0 out of 5 based on 0 customer ratings


USB device featuring a 3D accelerometer, a 3D gyroscope and a 3D magnetometer. This device can measure directly the 2D inclination, the magnetic orientation and provide a 3D orientation esimated based on inertial measurements.

The Yocto 3D is a USB 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. If you need to detect an orientation, a movement or a magnetic field, the Yocto 3D is what you need. This USB device provides a 3D accelerometer, a 3D magnetometer, a 3D gyroscope to measure angular velocity, a 2D inclinometer (tilt sensor), a tilt compensated compass and an inertial estimation of the orientation based on the 3D gyroscope.

All maths required to use this kind of sensors are handled directly by the device. You can mount it in any position, as the reference frame can be configured and taken into account internally by the Yocto-3D. The device automatically computes tilt angles and the estimated device attitude (using a quaternion, with an optional conversion to Tait-Bryan angles in the API). No additional computation is required in the application to determine the device orientation.

You can move away the sensor part as required, in particular if you want to avoid electromagnetic interferences from other devices. Note that contrarily to the newer Yocto 3D-V2, this product CANNOT be calibrated to compensate for magnetic interferences.

Caution: if you intend to use the compass function, you should not use the classical Yoctopuce enclosures, as they include steel screws and magnets. Instead, use the YoctoBox-3D-Black/Transp enclosures, whose screws and bolts are in aluminium and brass, and which do no include magnets.

To Pokemon GO users: Yoctopuce products work only with applications specifically designed to use them. On a Android phone, the Yocto-3D will not appear as a generic embedded gyroscope. If your android phone doesn’t feature any embedded gyroscope, the Yocto-3D can’t help you to play with Pokemon GO.

This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub GSM.

USB cables and enclosure to be ordered separately.
