Gyro Update Frequency

edited February 2016 in Hardware
I'm wondering what the maximum update speed for the gyro/accel is. I seem to get a similar number of results back regardless of the frequency (100HZ and 1600HZ give about 5000-6000 updates to my phone per minute). Are the higher frequencies designed purely for internal logging? Is it possible to get more updates? How fast does your example app stream data?



  • You cannot reliably stream data faster than 100Hz over a Bluetooth LE connection.  If you want a higher ODR, you must log the data.  The sample app streams at 50Hz.
  • Thanks for the info!
