readAngularVelocity

Read one angular velocity data sample from LSM6DSL sensor

Description

example

[gyroReadings,timestamp] = readAngularVelocity(sensor) returns one sample of the angular velocity data from the LSM6DSL IMU sensor. The angular velocity sample is returned as a 3-by-1 vector in rad/s along the X, Y, and Z axes. The function also returns the timestamp at which MATLAB® receives the angular velocity data from the LSM6DSL sensor. The timestamp output is optional.

Read the angular velocity data from the LSM6DSL IMU sensor on the X, Y, and Z axes.

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 lsm6dsl sensor object on the I2C bus 'i2c-1' on address '0x6B'.

sensor = lsm6dsl(mypi,'Bus','i2c-1','I2CAddress','0x6B');
sensor = 

  lsm6dsl with properties:

                         I2CAddress: 107 ("0x6B")
                                Bus: i2c-1

Return one sample of angular velocity data read from the LSM6DSL sensor on the X, Y, and Z axes.

[gyroReadings,timestamp] = readAngularVelocity(sensor);
gyroReadings =

  data

    -0.0173   -0.0311   -0.0070


timestamp = 

  datetime

   5-Jan-2021 11:36:29.135

Since the timestamp output is optional, you can obtain only the angular velocity data from the LSM6DSL sensor.

[gyroReadings] = readAngularVelocity(sensor);
gyroReadings =

  data

    -0.0173   -0.0311   -0.0070

Input Arguments
