A pedometer is an electronic device that estimates the distance traveled by a person by recording the number of steps walked. Pedometers use an accelerometer to count the number of steps. A Raspberry Pi SenseHAT records acceleration along X, Y, and Z axes. You can use Simulink to record this data over a duration of time using the MAT-file logging feature. You can then use MATLAB to analyze the imported MAT-files to count the number of steps. To use the MAT-file logging feature with the Simulink ...
