Getting Started with MEMs sensors

Nucleo Sensors Demo

This example demonstrates how to use the Nucleo sensors shield with the STM32F401 Nucleo board to obtain real-time sensor data from the onboard sensors:

First, attach the sensor shield to the Nucleo board as shown here: /media/uploads/dangriffin/nucleo_sensor_shield2.jpg

Next, connect the STM32F401 Nucleo board to your PC with a USB cable.

Now return to the Nucleo Sensors Demo project homepage and import the project into your mbed compiler:

/media/uploads/johnbloomfield/401_gswnmsensors.jpg Click “Import” button on the pop up window shown below


Compile and load the image onto the F401 Nucleo board


Refer to Getting Started with mbed STM32F401 to learn how to compile and load a program onto the Nucleo board

Open a terminal window to display the status of your connection. For this example, set the terminal BAUD rate to 9600


Refer to Console Output for setting a terminal emulator

You should now see the various sensor readings displayed on your console output.
