IMU Get ACC reports gyro



  • There appears to be an issue with the IMU module in M5Flow. The function "Get X Acc" appears to report the orientation of the device, instead of the accelleration. Here is the python code to reproduce it:

    from m5stack import *
    from m5ui import *
    from uiflow import *
    import imu

    setScreenColor(0x222222)

    imu0 = imu.IMU()

    while True:
    lcd.clear()
    lcd.print((imu0.acceleration[0]), 0, 0, 0xffffff)
    lcd.print((imu0.acceleration[1]), 0, 20, 0xffffff)
    wait_ms(400)
    wait_ms(2)

    If you run the program, the displayed numbers are between -1 and 1 depending on how you turn the device.

    I also tried the C/C++ example for the M5Stack located here: https://github.com/m5stack/M5Stack/blob/master/examples/Basics/IMU/IMU.ino
    This example seems to run fine.
