Arduino Library Setup for ZX Sensor & Play

  1. Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries... > Search "SparkFun ZX Distance and Gesture Sensor v1.0.1" (or populate keyword "gesture") > Install
  2. File > Examples > SparkFun ZX Distance and Gesture Sensor > Select "I2C_Gesture_Demo" to get you started
  3. Run your demo Demo Run
  4. Move your hand around above the sensor, and you should see Z (height above the sensor) and X (position side to side) appear in the serial terminal Gesture Motion
  5. Live Z- and X- data should appear given as an unsigned integer between 0 and 240 (inclusive) Gesture data
  6. More information for this sensor model and hookup can be found on SparkFun 🍀
You can’t perform that action at this time.
