#2926: 3-Axis High Precision Compass Magnometer Module (AK8975)


This high-precision 3-axis compass is fully compatible with Arduino and will instantly add navigation capabilities to your project. An electronic compass module is essential for any autonomous robots. Luckily for us, our planet's magnetic field is simple; how would you be able to determine your robots direction if moving on something like the Sun where the magnetic fields are in constant change? As long as you are not planning to send your robot to the Sun, then you will find this compass module to be extremely useful, especially if comobined with a GPS module to determine your robot's position (on Earth!).


The AK8975 is a 3-axis magnetometer sensor module that is commonly used in electronic devices to measure the strength and direction of the local magnetic field. It is often used in conjunction with other sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide accurate orientation information. Some possible applications for the AK8975 include detecting the orientation of a device, providing a digital compass function, and measuring the strength of the local magnetic field. It is important to note that the accuracy of the sensor may be affected by nearby metallic objects or electrical interference, so it is important to consider these factors when using the AK8975 in a device.
