    motion detection

    Hi engineers. I'm working on an animal motion detection IoT project and I want to use a sensor that by measuring the specific value of the acceleration (which is defined by me), it turns on and sends an interrupt to MCU. As it's working on battery, power consumption is very important so do you have any suggestion?

    Do you think any_motion/no_motion INT in BMI160 is useful ? If yes how can I define my thresholds?

    By your experience, do have any suggestion for battery?

    Thank you in advance

    Re: motion detection

    Hi arvin837,

    For your requirement "I want to use a sensor that by measuring the specific value of the acceleration (which is defined by me)", do yo mean send an interrupt to MCU as long as the acceleration exceeds the threshold value?
    If yes, you only need to use acceleration products to meet the requirements. There are any_motion/no_motion example on github.
