RGB and Gesture Sensor - APDS9960
The APDS9960 is a RGB and Gesture Sensor. The sensor uses I2C to interface with the mbed to reads in a gesture made along the x, y, or z axes and returns a string indicating the gesture's direction.(Currently NonFunctional)
A library for the APDS9960 gesture sensor. This library is still incomplete.
|VL||Provides power to the IR LED if PS jumper is disconnected. Must be between 3.0 - 4.5V.|
|GND||Connect to Ground|
|VCC||Provides power to the APDS9960 sensor. Must be between 2.4 - 3.6V.|
|INT||External interrupt pin. Active LOW on interrupt event.|
PS is the jumper that connects the power supplies of the sensor and the IR LED together. The jumper is closed by default. Header pins must be soldered to the breakout board in order to make it bread broad compatible.

Pull up resistors are built into the breakout board for the I2C interface. External pull up resistors are unnecessary.
