The important element of this research is the three-dimensional accelerometer sensor [1] that functions in triple axis sensor x, y and z and being supported by an open source known as Arduino board [2].
MEMs process enables the ADXL001 capacitive accelerometer to provide a dynamic range that extends from [+ or -]70g to [+ or -]500g in combination with 22 kHz of bandwidth.
Figure 1 shows the main elements of a conventional rectangular accelerometer.
Detection algorithms (Athletic Data Innovations) were used to recognize foot strikes based on the magnitude vector and the relationship between the Y and Z components of the accelerometer data.
This method also is incredibly precise but, like accelerometers, laser vibrometry is time consuming, measuring only a single point at a time.
Typical MEMS accelerometer is composed of movable proof mass with plates that is attached through a mechanical suspension system to a reference frame.
The innovative system will save money when the accelerometer has to be fixed permanently on to the test object; only the mount itself-costing from just $38 - has to be affixed, whilst the more expensive accelerometer can be removed at the end of the test or swapped with an accelerometer of different sensitivity.
The USB ICPDigital[TM] Dynamic Accelerometer simplifies and improves the general accessibility to precision vibration measurements through the ease and simplicity of the consumer USB communication world.
To assess accelerations of the body during movements, the wearable accelerometer is usually placed as close to the centre of gravity as possible.
The study was conducted on more than 100 devices over a period of nine months on 80 standalone accelerometer chips, 25 Android devices and 2 tablets.
The researchers tested more than 100 devices over the course of nine months: 80 standalone accelerometer chips used in popular smartphones, 25 Android phones, and 2 tablets.
According to the patent listing, the tech giant has patented a technology allowing the company to use an accelerometer in its devices.
Our hypothesis was that data from a single prosthesis-mounted accelerometer could be used to identify when a prosthetic user was wearing the prosthesis and whether the user was sitting, standing, or actively moving.
It is well known that accelerometer mass load on heavy structures has negligible influence on dynamic measurements.
