Accelerometer and gravity force (Part 1)

In this scenario we examine the relationship between the sensor called “Accelerometer”, used to measure  linear speed variations in the 3 directions of space, and the “Gravimeter”, used to evaluate the 3 components of the G-force.

This experience is designed to let students understand the functioning of two important sensors used to analyze movement, such as the accelerometer and the gravity sensor.
