Can anybody explain how to wire the ADXL345 Accelerometer Board or can someone provide a wiring diagram? Thanks.

Because the Accelerometer is a digital sensor, your going to wire it into the digital side car. You're going to preferably solder 4 pins into "OV, SDA, SCL, and 5V" then use female to female wires to connect it to the side car. The pins on the side car are next to the I2C (the small gray box). 5v on accel connects to 5v on side cart, SCl on acel connects to SCL on side cart, SDA connects to SDA on side cart, and finally OV connects to (-) on side cart. I hope all this helps

Don't solder to the Digital Sidecar; use a connector.

Details of what connects to where are in the Sensor Manual, found on the FIRST web site.

This was very useful, thanks. Do you also know how to wire the connected gyro? We are stuck trying to figure this out.
