Add support for dual H3LIS331DL accelerometer

Hi,

For my combat robot I need to measure accelerometer data from two H3LIS331DL accelerometers. According to the datasheet, two of them can be added on the same I2C bus (SDO/SA0-pin changes the sensors address). It also allows changing the measurement range (+-100g/+-200g/+-400g).

Would it be possible to add support for this accelerometer + allow reading of both sensors on the same I2C-bus?

Would be a lot of work and can't be done as a small side job! Best way forward would be using the supported IMUs.

Maybe someone in the communit is willing to put the work into this.

Yes it is possible but not 100% plug and play. You could run a VESC-Tool on a Raspberry Pi for example and connect to the VESC HW via USB.

We run VESC-Tool on a Pi Zero and execute a LISP script on the VESC motor controller. This script is auto loaded in VESC-Tool and changes the UI to display what we want to see.

The BETA VESC-Tool has the scripting interface built in. If you download BETA VESC-Tool you can navigate to VESC DEV Tools.
