What is Accelerometer? - Explained




1. What is Accelerometer?

Accelerometer is a sensor which is sensitive to the movement or the acceleration from the it's original position. Accelerometers are used in vehicles, motor bikes, trains and many research equipment in the world to get the correct reading which are necessary to make the relevant calculations. 


2. Technology

Simple theory of physics used in the accelerometer in the build. Not on the earth surface accelerations, the free fall from the sky also can be captured by using the accelerometer.

There are digital accelerometers which are commonly used in many devices that we use daily. Including the mobile phone, DIY project, Tablet PC, Smart Watch and etc...
