Hello Community,

thats my first post in this forum and I am asking you for advice.

My goal is to get data from skateboard tricks (most important: angular and linear velocities) to, later on, feed an algorithm to detect, which trick it was.

Now I thought about using a Teensy MC because it has a higher rate than an arduino and I thought the more data I get the better it is. A trick is quite short, lets say 1/2 a sec.

I thought about using an IMU to gather data. I would also need a SD card to store the data and a battery to power it.

Now my 1. question:
Do you think this setup is appropriate for the mentioned application?


And 2.: Can you give me some advice about which products to use. Like which battery which sensor and which MC and also maybe some other things?


I am not very experienced with microcontrollers, just had 1 project with an arduino. Any ideas or thought could help be so feel free to share Also sorry for maybe same grammar mistakes.. not the language of my mother.

Thanks and have a nice day
