ADPS 9960 Not Outputting Gestures

by ryanwinters on Sat May 30, 2020 5:02 pm

I have an adafruit 9960 board connected to an arduino UNO.
I followed the hookup guide here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-apd ... g-and-test
I am using the example code from adafruit for gesture_sensor with no modifications.
The device will initialize but it will not print out any gestures(up,down,left,right). The serial monitor prints out "Device initialized!" but nothing else.
I have tried with two different 9960 boards and they both behave the same.
Any ideas why no gestures show up when I wave my hand?

I have noticed that sometimes it will actually start outputting gestures after a long enough time of me holding my hand in front of it. I see in the code it says "gesture mode will be entered once proximity mode senses something close". I will hold my hand in front of it at different distances and I can sometimes get it to start working. Once it does start outputting gestures it will continue working well until I turn it off. But then when I turn it back on it still takes 5+ minutes of me holding my hand at different distances trying to get it to start. Is there a way I can disable the proximity requirement to start the first time?
