|Donít know where to take your
project next? The Compass Module AppMod can give your application
direction. Typically, people are relegated to buying an expensive GPS
unit, and then must spend a lot of time writing the interface software
to retrieve the data. Thanks to this handy little sensor from Dinsmore
Instruments, our Compass AppMod provides a low-cost direction sensor
that is perfect for many applications, particularly Boe-Bots.
Additionally, we added a co-processor to make the module as useful and
as easy to use as it can be. The current direction (one of eight
possible) is indicated for humans by on-board LEDs and is available via
a serial interface for non-humans. BS2 and a development board (like the
Board of Education) recommended, but not required.
