I didn't want to self promote here, but I am anyways :)
We developed a Plug and Play modular sensor Architecture. you can check out
the kickstarter for it here
also more info here: https://hackaday.io/project/12808-pure-modules and
I think you might be interested in the super sensor module as it has 7
sensor chips on it.
I'm planning on working with the mynewt sensor API when I get some more
free time after the kickstarter is over and when I get some more time to
add the nrf52 core support mynewt bsp, although it doesn't seem that
critical as the code compiled for the nrf52dk bsp works fine on it. If
anyone wants a pre-release nrf52 core module to add bsp support send me an
Also if you check out the BLE GATT characteristics, they almost have every
sensor type covered.
https://www.bluetooth.com/specifications/gatt/characteristics it would be
worth checking out if your sensor is already covered.
