What is Acceleration Sensing?

Acceleration sensing refers to the movement of an object from one point to another along a straight line or axis. It includes translational movement such as position and orientation.

Typical acceleration/ translational sensing applications and functions:

  • Health and fitness monitoring equipment
  • Remote control and point devices
  • Enhanced gaming experience
  • Gesture recognition for data entry or control functions
  • Portable device system power up/down based on activity/inactivity
  • Telematics/fleet management
  • Industrial & medical instrumentation
  • Consumer appliances

Discrete acceleration/ translational sensing applications call for low-g accelerometers or high-g accelerometers.
