Introduction
An
accelerometer in an
airplane allows for
autopiloting and helps balance
the plane.
This application is important
because pilots can take a break
after long hours of flying and

Introduction
An accelerometer is a sensor that measures accelerations across certain planes. The way
accelerometers measure acceleration is by the motion of a proof mass; by measuring the
deflection of the proof mass, the rate of acceleration can be deter
