Step Counter using Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel Curie


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.

I hope you have already gathered all the components required to make this tutorial.

Make the connection as per given image.



Follow the connections as per numbering. Connect VCC of OLED display to 3.3 V of Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel curie. Gnd to gnd. SDA to SDA and SCL to SCL of Arduino Genuino 101 / Intel curie.


I have given the process and details in the below video. Please watch the below video carefully and follow the instructions.


Simply copy and paste this code.
