Questions with Motion Sensors - Accelerometers

  • Ask: What is accelerometer sensor?

    Answer: An accelerometer is an electromechanical device used to measure acceleration forces. Such forces may be static, like the continuous force of gravity or, as is the case with many mobile devices, dynamic to sense movement or vibrations. Acceleration is the measurement of the change in velocity, or speed divided by time.


  • Ask: How does an accelerometer sensor work?

    Answer: Accelerometers typically contain a piezoelectric crystal element bonded to a mass. When the accelerometer is subject to an accelerative force, the mass compresses the crystal, causing it to produce an electrical signal that is proportional to the level of force applied.

  • Ask: What is the use of accelerometer sensor in mobile phones?

    Answer: Accelerometers in mobile phones are used to detect the orientation of the phone. The gyroscope, or gyro for short, adds an additional dimension to the information supplied by the accelerometer by tracking rotation or twist.

  • Ask: What are the different types of accelerometers?

    Answer: Accelerometers are used for the measurement of acceleration, shock or vibration. You may be aware that there are different types of accelerometers; Compression Mode, Shear mode and Capacitive. All three types are vibration sensors \u2013 here is some more information on these three different types.
