Tracker

by micro_controller on Mon Apr 06, 2020 12:06 am

Hello,

I'm new,a tinkerer and would like to create my own and first tracker with accelerometer, gyroscope,pressure and heart rate sensor.

What would you recommend?

Thanks,

micro_controller

I think you would have to narrow down what you are trying to track. Is this a tracker for exercise, do you need to offload the captured data for analysis, how much data is being captured, is the hardware fast enough to sense the data, do the sensors capture the information you need (accelerometer, gps, magnetometer can determine different things related to movement), what kind of pressure are you trying to read? DIY heartbeat sensors are not medical grade for accuracy - strapped to a runner and placement of sensor affect its use...
You can look through all the datalogging projects in the adafruit Learn tutorials to get an idea of what you need. Good luck.
