Introduction

LIS331HH Triple Axis Accelerometer, a low-power high performance triple axis liner accelerometer, features ultra-low-power operational modes that can realize smart sleep to wake-up function that allows advanced power saving. Moreover, as this sensor comes with two built-in independent programmable interrupt generators, users can generate a custom interrupt to realize wake-up function. And it has dynamically user selectable sacles ranges of ±6 g/±12 g/±24 g, capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates from 0.5 Hz to 1 kHz.

Tutorial for Raspberry Pi

Requirements

Connection

Driver Installtion

1.Enable the I2C interface of the Raspberry Pi. If it is already enabled, you can skip this step. Open Terminal, type the following command, and press Enter:

    sudo raspi-config

Then use the up and down keys to select "5 Interfacing Options", press Enter, select "P5 I2C", and press Enter to confirm "YES". Restart the Raspberry Pi main control board.

2.To install Python dependent libraries and git, the Raspberry Pi needs to be connected to the Internet. If it is already installed, you can skip this step. In the terminal, type the following commands in sequence, and press Enter:

  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python-smbus git

3.Download the LIS series driver library. In the terminal, type the following commands in sequence and press Enter:

  cd Desktop
  git clone https://github.com/DFRobot/DFRobot_LIS
