In this tutorial, we are going to make a physical step counter using arduino genuino 101 / intel curie. We will use an I2C oled display of size 128x64 to display the steps taken by the user. You can hook it up using a battery bank and a strap on your leg and it calculates and shows the steps in real time.
We will be using internal gyroscope and accelerometer present on arduino genuino 101 / intel curie board.
