hi, guys I am a Y3 student who's focusing on FYP this year, and my project is Sensor-based human movement detection & classification. I've seen so many similar projects these days, but I do wanna have a go with this brand new Arduino board. Unfortunately, I am totally new to Arduino boards (only used Uno on simulation software before). Therefore, I am asking you guys, Arduino experts, that is Nicla sense ME programmable? (can achieve my objective) if not what else do I need? (any other Arduino boards)?
Anyone here can help? I have connected the H7 lite and Nicla boards trying to get data from Nicla sensors and ran the temperature example in the Arduino_BHY2host lib. But nothing showed up in the monitor and got the following warning:
WARNING: library Arduino_BHY2Host claims to run on samd, mbed architecture(s) and may be incompatible with your current board which runs on mbed_portenta architecture(s).
The Arduino Nicla is a development board (like the Arduino Uno) and therefore like all development boards it is programmable and has pins to which you can connect sensors. Unlike the more "simple" Arduinos (like the Arduino Uno), the Nicla has several sensors and intergate functions like BLE, a pin for a lipo battery, a gas sensor (BME688) and -for movement detection- the BHI260AP, a 6 axis IMU (3-Axis Accelerometer + 3-Axis Gyroscope) and the BMM150, a magnetometer
I don't know for sure, but I don't see it mentioned on the Nicla Sense ME product page, and I didn't received an Eslov cable with the other types of Arduino boards I bought that have an Eslov connector, so I would guess the answer is "no" but I might be wrong about that.
I don't see the Eslov cables for sale on the Arduino store, but fortunately this is not a proprietary connector. It is a standard JST SH 5P connector. So if you find that connector from any electronics component supplier then it will work on the Nicla. For example: https://www.digikey.com/catalog/en/partgroup/sh-series/8406
maybe easier to work with, but also maybe a less sure to be the right thing (I had that problem before when buying "JST" connectors from random sellers):
