Adafruit CircuitPython module for the LSM303's accelerometer

Dependencies

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-lsm303_accel

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lsm303_accel

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-lsm303_accel

Usage Example

import time
import board
import adafruit_lsm303_accel

i2c = board.I2C()  # uses board.SCL and board.SDA
sensor = adafruit_lsm303_accel.LSM303_Accel(i2c)

while True:
    acc_x, acc_y, acc_z = sensor.acceleration

    print('Acceleration (m/s^2): ({0:10.3f}, {1:10.3f}, {2:10.3f})'.format(acc_x, acc_y, acc_z))
    print('')
    time.sleep(1.0)
