How do I program ICSP crash sensor?

Hello! I have a crash sensor that has an ICSP connector. Can I program this to work on my arduino? It hooks right up, but I'm not even sure how to program the arduino to work with it, and I haven't really seen any tutorials on how to do this. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

I'll guess that you can program the Arduino to work with the sensor. I'll guess that the sensor is NOT programmable.

Knowing more about the sensor than that it is green and furry would be helpful.

Sure! It's a DFRobot Crash Sensor V2

Hi, DFRobot Crash Sensor V2 Where is the ICSP? Its just a microswitch with No and NC switches, it is hardware programmed.

ICSP connectors come in many shapes.

Go back to adafruit and look at this page. http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=763#.Vf4ENN-qqko

Look down the page and check the info available about the product, including the [u]sample code[/u]. Use a DMM to workout the COM , NC and NO connections.

What is your electronics, programming, arduino, hardware experience?

My apologies, I'm just a beginner. I got the impression when I saw the connecting wire with three connectors that it would fit onto the three prongs on the Arduino where it says ICSP. Am I mistaken? Is there any way I can get it to work there, or am I better off using the male to male connectors to my arduino? Thank you!

Am I mistaken?

Yes.

am I better off using the male to male connectors to my arduino?

Yes.

PaulS: Yes. Yes.

Thanks, Paul! How is Seattle? I lived there for a little while and can't wait to move back.

I have one more question. Thank you for helping, by the way.

Can I connect this sensor to those prongs and use it that way?

Im afraid you cant. You should google 'avr isp pinout', you'll see what is each pin, they dont fit the purpouse of the Nc, No and Com pins.

Hi, Yes you can use the male to male leads to connect the switch to the arduino input and power connectors.
