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 (from the busio or the bitbangio library) as an argument to its constructor. The way to create an I2C object depends on the board you are using. For boards with labeled SCL and SDA pins, you can:
from busio import I2C from board import SDA, SCL i2c = I2C(SCL, SDA)
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:
