Accelerometer Sensor Basics (Section 2)
Materials Fee $15
Day/Time: Sunday, April 23 10:30 AM (60 minutes)
Location: Fiesta Hall WorkshopDual-axis thermal accelerometers output a pulse width related to static (incline) and dynamic acceleration. In this Parallax workshop, you will wire a Memsic 2125 on a BASIC Stamp board. The microcontroller will be programmed to display the accelerometers two-axis incline. The hardware could be taken away from the seminar for the following purposes: mounting on an R/C car or skateboard for g-force or incline datalogging; on a two-wheel balancing robot; or on a dashboard of your 4x4 as a tilt indicator. Participants will take the hardware from the course.
This workshop is also being held on Saturday at 10:30 AM.
