Proximity Sample

This application demonstrates reading proximity data from the sensor.

To run the example:

  1. Open the IoT_Node_ALSGesture_Proximity 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_ALSGesture_Module.h>

// Create ALS Gesture Sensor instance.
Turta_ALSGesture_Module als;

void setup() {
  // Initialize ALS Gesture Sensor.

  // Configure serial port.

void loop() {
  // Read proximity.
  short resultP = als.readProximity();
  Serial.print("Proximity: ");

  // Print an empty line.

  // Delay 1000ms = 1 seconds.


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

Proximity: 123

The application runs forever until you clear it from memory.
