NinjaScan-Light Kit

NinjaScan-Light is a tiny logger with GPS receiver, 3-axis accelerometer,barometer, 3-axis gyro, 3-axis magnetometer, and a thermometer. This item was commercialized based on an open-source hardware project (Creative Commons + New BSD) originally developed by a project leader fenrir. The data recorded by each sensor can be stored in a microSD card. Also, you can dump real-time data via USB connection. By using the supplied software, you can convert the file into CSV format, which you can edit with various software including Microsoft Excel.

Upon launching NinjaScan-Light, we worked with fenrir. But, please do not contact fenrir for information regarding this product. Please contact us in case of any transportation and production related issues. We do not provide technical support for this product.


Sampling rate of each sensor

  • gyro and accerolometer : 100Hz(10 ms),
  • magnetometer : approximately 2 Hz (640 ms)
  • barometer : approximately 3 Hz (320 ms)
  • GPS : 5Hz (200ms)

The pre-written firmware is open-source and rewritable. As for the microSD reader, also SDHC and microSD for lager data capacity can be used. You can supply power either by USB or Li-poly battery (1 cell = 3.7V). An alternative way to supply power is from batteries of your computer and smartphone. You can charge a li-poly battery via USB. There is also Scan Ninja GUI tool [ZIP] available for converting the log data into CSV format for Windows users. This software is open-source as well.
