CurieIMU

readAccelerometer()

Description

Reads the raw value of the accelerometer.

Syntax

CurieIMU.readAccelerometer(int ax, int ay, int az)

Parameters

ax: a variable in which the accelerometer's value along x will be stored.
ay: a variable in which the accelerometer's value along y will be stored.
az: a variable in which the accelerometer's value along z will be stored.

To convert the raw value into mg use the following formula:
float g = (gRaw/32768.0)*getAccelerometerRange()
where gRaw is either ax, ay or az.
