Tilt Sample

This application demonstrates reading tilt states of X, Y, and Z axes.

To run the example:

  1. Open the IoT_Node_AccelTilt_Tilt sketch from the examples menu.

  2. Select Turta IoT Node from the Tools > Board menu.

  3. Select your device's COM port from Tools > Port menu.

  4. Open Serial Monitor from Tools > Serial Monitor.

  5. Select 115.200 baud from the Serial Monitor's status bar.

  6. Upload the code to your device.

Sample Code

#include <Turta_AccelTilt_Module.h>

// Create Accel & Tilt Sensor instance.
Turta_AccelTilt_Module accel;

void setup() {
  // Initialize Accel & Tilt Sensor.

  // Configure serial port.

void loop() {
  // Read Tilt State.
  bool xTilt, yTilt, zTilt;
  accel.readTiltState(xTilt, yTilt, zTilt);
  Serial.print("X: ");
  Serial.print(xTilt ? "Tilt" : "Flat");
  Serial.print(", Y: ");
  Serial.print(yTilt ? "Tilt" : "Flat");
  Serial.print(", Z: ");
  Serial.println(zTilt ? "Tilt" : "Flat");

  // Delay 100ms.


After the application is uploaded to the device, it writes tilt states to the Serial Monitor. The example output should be like this:

X: Flat, Y: Flat, Z: Tilt
X: Flat, Y: Flat, Z: Tilt
X: Flat, Y: Tilt, Z: Flat
X: Flat, Y: Tilt, Z: Flat

The application runs forever until you clear it from memory.
