readTemperature

Read one ambient temperature data sample from LSM303C sensor

Description

example

[tempReading,timestamp] = readTemperature(sensor) returns one sample of the ambient temperature data from the LSM303C IMU sensor. The ambient temperature sample is returned as a scalar in degree Celsius. The function also returns the timestamp at which MATLAB® receives the temperature data from the LSM303C sensor. The timestamp output is optional.

Read the ambient temperature data from the LSM303C IMU sensor.

Create a connection from MATLAB to the Raspberry Pi™ hardware board.

mypi = raspi;
mypi = 

  Raspi with Properties:

           DeviceAddress: 'raspberrypi-hysdu8X38o'
                    Port: 18734
               BoardName: 'Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+'
           AvailableLEDs: {'led0'}
    AvailableDigitalPins: [4,5,6,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27]
    AvailableSPIChannels: {‘CE0’,’CE1’}
       AvailableI2CBuses: {'i2c-1'}
             I2CBusSpeed: 100000
        AvailabelWebCams: mmal service 16.1 (platform:bcm2835-v4l2)

Create an lsm303c sensor object on the I2C bus 'i2c-1' on addresses '0x1D' and '0x1E'.

sensor = lsm303c(mypi,'Bus','i2c-1');
sensor = 

  lsm303c with properties:

                         I2CAddress: 29 ("0x1D")
                                   : 30 ("0x1E")
                                Bus: i2c-1

Return one sample of ambient temperature data read from the LSM303C sensor.

[tempReading,timestamp] = readTemperature(sensor);
tempReading =

  data

    20.7500


timestamp = 

  datetime

   10-Dec-2020 18:12:45.045

Since the timestamp output is optional, you can obtain only the temperature data from the LSM303C sensor.

[tempReading] = readTemperature(sensor);
tempReading =

  data

    20.7500

Input Arguments

collapse all

LSM303C sensor object connection to the Raspberry Pi hardware board, specified as a lsm303c object.

Example: sensor = lsm303c(mypi) creates a connection to the LSM303C sensor on the Raspberry Pi object mypi.

Output Arguments
