Sense HAT (B) as substitute for Motessier
#1
Greetings, 
I’m trying to upgrade our Downeaster 38 and decided to go with an Openplotter install on a RPi4b. Love the features on Openplotter BTW. I wanted to get the Mottessier HAT but they are no longer available. My partial substitute is the Sense HAT (B) and while I can apparently run successful tests (apparent) output) I’m unable to add the sensors to I2C. Is it likely there could be a way to Add new sensor devices to the list. The following are the sensor devices included on the HAT.
ADS1015
ICM20948- 9 axis accl/mag/gyro
SHTC3 temp/humidty
LPS22HB barometric pressure
TCS34725 light sensor (no real plan to use this one yet)
My Daughter is a software engineer and with some guidance we might be able sort this out.
Thank you for you time and this excellent software!

Are you talking about this one?

https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/Sense_HAT_(B)

Some of these sensors are in the TODO list of OpenPlotter:

- currently ADS1115 is supported and ADS1015 will be added to I2C app
- ICM20948 will be supported by pypilot app soon.

LPS22HB and SHTC3 are not on the list but it could be implemented using the adafruit libraries in the I2C app: https://github.com/openplotter/openplotter-i2c


Let me know if you want to work on this.

No plans for the TCS34725
