NEW VIDEO | Accelerometers vs. Gyroscopes
Often mistaken for each other, the differences between accelerometers and gyroscopes can be challenging to grasp. Luckily, we have provided a comprehensive video explaining the nuances of the two. Accelerometers provide precise measurements of the linear movement of an object. Accelerometers can be used in applications surrounding anti-theft, lift-gate motion detectors, telematics, insurance vehicle tracking, and more. Gyroscopes, on the other hand, measure the angular velocity of an object around an axis (speed and rotation). Gyroscopic measurements provide accuracy in aspects like the stability, direction, and rotational speed of an object. Gyroscopes can be seen in aircraft applications and motion control technology.
