If your project is need of an accelerometer, take a look at this module. On-board is an ADXL345 triple axes accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) up to ±16 g. The digital output data is formatted as 16-bit twos complement and accessible through either a SPI or I2C.


Features:

  • Ultralow power: as low as 23 µA in measurement mode and 0.1 µA in standby mode at VS = 2.5 V (typical)
  • Power consumption scales automatically with bandwidth
  • User-selectable resolution up to 13-bit at ±16 g (maintaining 4 mg/LSB scale factor in all g ranges)
  • Free-fall detection
  • Module supply voltage range: 4.0 V to 6 V
  • I/O voltage range: 1.7 V to 3.6V
  • SPI (3- and 4-wire) and I2
  • Wide temperature range (−40°C to +85°C)
  • High G shock survival
  • Small and thin: 3 mm x 5 mm x 1 mm

Documentation and Resources:
  • Automatic Bike Indicators
  • This project uses an Accelerometer to detect when you are leaning left or right. Depending on if/where you are leaning, it will flash LEDs on the right or left of the bike's rear. Powered by an Arduino and a 12v battery pack (my case 8 AA Batteries). I have made a video on it below. Here is the code you'll need to build your own....
