This sensor is a module that can sense vibrations and emits a signal at each vibration. It consists of a simple conductive outer shell, which closes contact with the internal spring in case of vibration and thus emits a signal.

Pin assignment Arduino

Arduino Sensor
pin 10 signal
5V +V
ground GND
Arduino Sensor
Pin 13 LED +
ground LED -

This is a sample program that lights up an LED when a signal is detected at the sensor. The modules KY-011, KY-016 or KY-029 can also be used as LEDs, for example.

int Led = 13 ;// declaration of the LED output pin
int Sensor = 10 ;// Declaration of the sensor input pin
int val; // Temporary variable
void setup ()
  pinMode (Led, OUTPUT) ; // Initialize output pin
  pinMode (Sensor, INPUT) ; // Initialize sensor pin
  digitalWrite(Sensor, HIGH) ; // Activate internal pull-up resistor
void loop ()
  val = digitalRead (Sensor) ; // The current signal at the sensor is read out
  if (val == HIGH) // If a signal could be detected, the LED is switched on.
    digitalWrite (Led, LOW);
    digitalWrite (Led, HIGH);

Pin assignment Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi Sensor
GPIO 24 [Pin 18] Signal
3.3V [Pin 1] +V
Ground [Pin 6] GND

This is a similar example program, with the difference that here no LED is lit but something is output to the console when a signal is detected.

# Required modules are imported and set up
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import time
# Here the input pin is declared to which the sensor is connected. Additionally the PullUP resistor is activated at the input.
GPIO.setup(GPIO_PIN, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down = GPIO.PUD_UP)
print ("Sensor test [press CTRL+C to finish the test]")
# This output function is executed when a signal is detected
def ausgabeFunktion(null):
        print("Signal erkannt")
# When a signal is detected (falling signal edge) the output function is executed
GPIO.add_event_detect(GPIO_PIN, GPIO.FALLING, callback=ausgabeFunktion, bouncetime=100) 
# Main program loop
        while True:
# Clean up after the program is finished

Pinout Micro:Bit:

Micro:Bit Sensor
Pin 1 Signal
3V +V
Ground GND

This is a MakeCode example for Micro:Bit which essentially does the same as the examples of the other two variants. However, this example is closer to the Raspberry Pi example than the Arduino example.
