The BNO055 is the first in a new family of Application Specific Sensor Nodes (ASSN) implementing an intelligent 9-axis Absolute Orientation Sensor, which includes sensors and sensor fusion in a single package. The smart sensor BNO055 is a System in Package (SiP) solution that integrates a triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, an accurate close-loop triaxial 16-bit gyroscope, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit microcontroller running the BSX3.0 FusionLib software. This smart sensor is significantly smaller than comparable solutions. By integrating sensors and sensor fusion in a single device, the BNO055 makes integration easy, avoids complex multivendor solutions and thus simplifies innovations, e.g. novel applications such as IoT hardware. The BNO055 is the perfect choice for AR, immersive gaming, personal health and fitness, indoor navigation and any other application requiring context awareness. It is ideally suited for demanding applications such as augmented reality, navigation, gaming, robotics, or industrial applications.
