Introduction An accelerometer is a device for detecting and measuring acceleration. It produces an output, usually electrical, which is proportional to the rate of acceleration. When considering the operation of any measurement device it is essential to understand the nature of the variable that the device is measuring. Acceleration can be defined as the rate at which an object’s velocity changes. Velocity is speed and direction so any time there is a change in either speed or direction there is acceleration. An object’s velocity will only change if there a net force acting on it. If the net force is zero then the velocity will remain constant and the acceleration is also zero.
