Today we are excited to announce official support for one of Arduino Pro’s latest products, the Nicla Sense ME.

The Nicla Sense ME is a tiny, low-power tool that sets a new standard for intelligent sensing solutions. With the simplicity of integration and scalability of the Arduino ecosystem, the board combines four state-of-the-art sensors from Bosch Sensortec:

  • BHI260AP motion sensor system with integrated AI
  • BMM150 magnetometer
  • BMP390 pressure sensor 
  • BME688 4-in-1 gas sensor with AI and integrated high-linearity, as well as high-accuracy pressure, humidity and temperature sensors

Designed to easily analyze motion and the surrounding environment — hence the “M” and “E” in the name — it measures rotation, acceleration, pressure, humidity, temperature, air quality, and CO2 levels by introducing completely new Bosch Sensortec sensors on the market.

Its small size and robust design make it suitable for projects that need to combine sensor fusion and AI capabilities on the edge, thanks to a strong computational power and low-consumption combination that can even lead to standalone applications when battery operated.

You can purchase the Arduino Nicla Sense ME directly from the Arduino Store.

Then follow our getting started guide or watch the video tutorial below to update the Nicla Sense ME with Edge Impulse firmware for data collection and model inferencing.

Once you have collected enough data samples from your desired sensor, you can follow the building a continuous motion recognition system tutorial to develop and deploy a machine learning model using one of the many Bosch sensor’s on the Nicla Sense ME.

We are very excited to see what you build with the Arduino Nicla Sense ME and Edge Impulse. Please post any questions you have and any projects you create over on our forum or tag @EdgeImpulse and @Arduino on our social media channels!
