I am building a rocket very similar to those built by BPS.Space.
My question is: How would I go about using a BNO055 to sense vertical acceleration?
To be more specific, I need to the IMU to send power to some electronics on board, but only once sensing vertical acceleration. The same thing will need to happen once the rocket begins falling. The IMU will sense negative vertical acceleration and then turn on some electronics.
I would guess that to turn the components on, it would look something like:
if (accelerating upwards)
Please let me know if you have any ideas!
