Adafruit 9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout - L3GD20 Driver
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-l3gd20
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-l3gd20
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-l3gd20
Of course, you must import the library to use it:
This driver takes an instantiated and active I2C object as an argument to its constructor.
import board i2c = board.I2C()
Once you have the I2C object, you can create the sensor object:
sensor = adafruit_l3gd20.L3GD20_I2C(i2c)
And then you can start reading the measurements:
