Data-logging with the micro:bit

Store and retrieve sensor readings

We're beta testing a new feature which will let you turn the new micro:bit with sound (V2) into a data logger with just a few blocks or lines of code.

Data is logged on your micro:bit and remains there, even when the power or batteries are disconnected.

To retrieve the data, plug the micro:bit in to a computer via a USB cable. On the MICROBIT drive you'll find a new file called MY_DATA.HTM

Double click on the MY_DATA file to open it in a web-browser. You'll see your data in a table which you can copy and paste or download as a CSV (comma separated values) file so you can process and visualise the data in spreadsheets or other software.

Details will appear here soon about how to create data-logging projects in MakeCode and Python.
