I'm new to Arduino hardware and coding in general. I'm trying to figure out a system for calculating displacement from acceleration using the Arduino Nano 33 BLE. I also have the arduino micro controller. Do I need to connect the Arduino Nano 33 BLE to the microcontroller? any suggestions to helping me setup would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, consumer grade accelerometers and IMUs are too noisy and inaccurate for displacement calculations, except in rare situations. If you want to learn about the details and issues, great overview at
PS: the nano 33 BLE is microcontroller, with an LSM9DS1 IMU on the PCB.
