I am currently engaged in the development and testing of machine learning models utilizing the Thingy 53 board. However, I have encountered an issue with the board’s BMI270 IMU sensor, which appears to be unsupported by the Edge Impulse Thingy 53 repository (GitHub - edgeimpulse/firmware-nordic-thingy53).
After conducting a thorough review of the repository, it appears that the Edge Impulse Thingy 53 application only provides support for the magnetometer and accelerometer sensors, and not the IMU sensor. As such, It would be great to have support for both the gyroscope and accelerometer data from the BMI270 IMU sensor.
I have successfully implemented the BMI270 sensor’s accelerometer and gyroscope into the Thingy53 firmware.You can find .hex files in the link (BMI270-Thingy53-Firmware – Google Drive). If anyone wants to see or developed more, I can share the source code.
Additionally, I have also integrated the MAG + IMU option, which enables the acquisition of nine different data points simultaneously.
