    Re: BMX160 Step Detection

    Hi BSTRobin,

    Thank you for your suggestion, indeed the buffer mechanism could be usefull. Can I interact with the buffer mechanism through the API? If yes, how this is possible?

    Thanks

    Hello Nikosant03,

    Buffer mechanism was running in internal algorithm, the following bits with red line could be set to change the buffer size.

    Hi BSTRobin,

    Thanks I will give a try!! That means that according to the datasheet (pg89 )in Normal mode the buffer size is 3, in Sensitive mode is 0 and in Robust mode is 7

    To be sure that I have understand it correctly, in Normal (buffer size 3) an interrupt will be generated every 4 steps while in Robust mode every 8 steps?

    Hello Nikosant03,

    Depending on internal algorithm, if min_step_buf is set to 3, 6 steps will be buffered, with the 7th step, step counter allows output.

    If if min_step_buf was set as a value, it should be added 3 for step counter buffer.
