Grove Zero - 9-Axis Motion Sensor
The 9 Axis Motion is a powerful motion sensor that can track motions like tilt, free fall, shake as well as detecting object orientation and work as a compass.
Module Category: Input
What is it?
The 9-axis motion sensor features powerful motion detection for events like tilt, shake, free fall, etc. It can also sense direction and work as a compass to detect the magnetic intensity of the Earth.
Grove Zero Series Introduction:
Grove Zero is a set of programmable elctronic building blocks which snap together with magentic connections & are used in conjuction with graphical programming software to achieve creative and functional projects. Grove Zero can be used boths as a tool to foster children's creativty as a classroom tool for STEM education. Learn more about the series here.
If this is your first experience with the Grove Zero series, we recommend that you purchase introductory kits such as the Starter Kit, Car Kit or Bit Kit, which include instructional documentation to help you get familiar with this educational series.

How this module works?
It is composed of a 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer, all built into one single microchip. Combined as one complex micro-electromechanical system (MEMS), these sensors are able to detect speed, direction, rotation, and to output their information as forms of acceleration (unit: mg), compass orientation (unit: °) and rotary angle (unit: °).
The 9-axis motion sensor is pre-programmed so that it can automatically detect motions like tilt, shake and free fall.
You can program the 9-axis Motion Sensor very easily with Codecraft to achieve more creative and challenging projects.
Connect modules together as shown below and tilt to see what happens.
