September 30, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Acal BFi, has the BNO055 9-axis sensor fusion from Bosch Sensortec: providing three sensors in one miniature package – gyro, accelerometer and tilt, the innovative BNO055 is a solution for applications including navigation, augmented reality, robotics, gaming, context awareness and fitness and well being.

The BNO055 is an intelligent 9-axis “Absolute Orientation Sensor” combining sensors and sensor fusion to reduce development time and costs and reduce the complexity of the integration process for customers. Measuring 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1 mm, this sensor is significantly smaller than its competitors and is equipped with digital bi-directional I²C and UART interfaces and an intelligent power management system.

BNO055 is accompanied by an evaluation board, also available at Acal Bfi;
