Low-Cost Accelerometers for Physics Experiments
Vannoni, Maurizio; Straulino, Samuele
European Journal of Physics, v28 n5 p781-787 Sep 2007
The implementation of a modern game-console controller as a data acquisition interface for physics experiments is discussed. The investigated controller is equipped with three perpendicular accelerometers and a built-in infrared camera to evaluate its own relative position. A pendulum experiment is realized as a demonstration of the proposed approach. (Contains 6 figures.)
