API for the Loudness Sensor. More...

Detailed Description

This sensor family returns an analog voltage proportional to the loudness of the ambient environment. It's output does not correspond to a particular sound level in decibels. The higher the output voltage, the louder the ambient noise level.

This device uses an electret microphone for sound input.

This driver was developed using the DFRobot Loudness Sensor V2 and the Grove Loudness sensor.

// Instantiate a Loudness sensor on analog pin A0, with an analog
// reference voltage of LOUDNESS_AREF
upm::Loudness loud(0, LOUDNESS_AREF);
// Every tenth of a second, sample the loudness and output it's
// corresponding analog voltage.
while (shouldRun) {
cout << "Detected loudness (volts): " << loud.loudness() << endl;
