APDS9960 RGB, Ambient Light, Gesture Sensor

Overview

This sample application demonstrates how to use the APDS9960 sensor to get ambient light, RGB, and proximity (or gesture) data. This sample checks the sensor in polling mode (without an interrupt trigger).

Building and Running

This sample application uses an APDS9960 sensor connected to a board (for example as shown in this Sparkfun APDS9960 tutorial).

Using west:

west flash

Using CMake and ninja:

cmake -B build -GNinja -DBOARD=reel_board samples/sensors/apds9960
ninja -C build flash

Sample Output

ambient light intensity without trigger is 387
proxy without trigger is 115
ambient light intensity without trigger is 386
proxy without trigger is 112
ambient light intensity without trigger is 386
