Max30100 pulse oximeter Kernel module

Wed May 30, 2018 5:02 pm

I'm trying to make the MAX30100 pulse oximeter work with my Raspberry Pi using a kernel module.
This is the kernel driver: ... max30100.c

I already compiled a custom kernel with support for the sensor.

lsmod shows that the module is loaded

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~ $ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
binfmt_misc            20480  1
max30100               16384  0
kfifo_buf              16384  1 max30100
cmac                   16384  1
bnep                   20480  2
hci_uart               36864  1
Now I have no idea how to start using the sensor. I searched many files and directories in /sys/bus/ but can't find anything related to MAX30100. I also don't know if it is necessary to configure something in config.txt to enable a specific DT overlay.

Has anyone tried something similar? Any help would be appreciated!

Are you done with MAX30100 on raspi?
Please show me how to do with it?
