Where am I? What am I doing here?


Where am I? What am I doing here?" -- Motion detection and sensor fusion on wearables and Micro:Bit with Python

Stephen Simmons

Accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers are suddenly everywhere -- in phones, wearables, and even in the BBC micro:bit. They are cheap, ultra-low power, and often can be read remotely using Bluetooth Low Energy. In this talk, learn how Python can help you:

  • collect raw multi-axis data in real time;
  • combine them optimally into a useful representation for analysis;
  • deal with noisy and missing data with Kalman filters; and
  • extract high-level gesture information.

The talk will include examples using MetaWear CPRO wearables and the BBC micro:bit
