    Setting up the step configuration on the BMA456.

    Setting up the step configuration on the BMA456.

    Can I get details on the step configuration on the BMA456?  I have reviewed the datasheet but it recommends consulting with a Bosch field application engineer.  I would like to configure the accelerometer for wrist use on a child.

    Hello GPC, 

     

    What do you want to know about step configuration in detail? 

    Basically, you can test it with our example in github. 

    https://github.com/BoschSensortec/BMA456-Sensor-API/tree/master/examples/bma456/generic

    And, our default for step counter algorithm is for wrist. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions. 

    Thanks,

    Hello GPC,

    Could we know which step configuration you would like to adjust?

    I am looking to adjust the customized step counter sensitivity configuration (page 34 of the BST-BMA456-DS000-01-1221276) since the step count appears to be higher than expected.

    Hello GPC,

    You could modify the following step counter parameters, and test it again.

    parameter_5: can be changed between: 4~10.

    10 most robust;

    4 most sensitive but quite easy for fake detection.

     

    Parameter_13:

    1: less fake detection, and more robust;

    0: more fake detection, and more sensitive.
