Python (and MicroPython) APDS-9960 Library
Python library for the APDS-9960 gesture sensor developed while I was looking to get the APDS-9960 to work with a Raspberry Pi to build a user interface feeling like in Minority Report.
This library has been tested with SparkFun RGB and Gesture Sensor - APDS-9960 but should work with any other APDS-9960 based I²C device, too.
This library is available from PyPi. You may want to setup a
virtualenv before installing the library using:
pip install apds9960
Features of the APDS-9960
- operational voltage: 3.3V
- ambient light & RGB color sensing
- proximity sensing
- gesture detection
- operating range: 10 - 20cm
- I²C interface (hard wired I²C address: 0x39)
