Physics Toolbox Accelerometer

Physics Toolbox Accelerometer


This accelerometer app measures and displays a graph of G-Force vs. Time(s) that can be exported in an e-mail as a .txt attachment with comma separated values (csv). G-Force and acceleration measured in the x, y, and z dimensions are displayed separately on the graph, and the total vector sum is displayed digitally.

See a review of this app in the Institute of Physics' physics education periodical: "Map and apps widen the scope of school physics." Physics Education. (May 2013). pg. 409-410. Retrieved online at: http://goo.gl/YtVfXe

Permissions Explained:

android.permission.WAKE_LOCK: Used to keep the device awake only when recording accelerometer data to csv. (Example: After pushing the record button, the app will continue to collect data even when placed in a pocket during a roller coaster ride, and will turn off only after data recording has been stopped.)

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: A csv file is created and modified on the phone's internal memory.

Needs GPS integration Would be extremely useful if only the data could be linked to UTM position data. I would pay for that.

Very well done application. I can't think of many useful applications for it

That's so cool. I'll use this to measure the g forces on my bus journey home from work. I'm sure it's way more at times than people can comfortably endure.

Good Its all good bt if u can show acceleration in m/s² then it would be awesome
