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.

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.

Fantastic tool This is a great accelerometer with a super simple export function. If you want analyze the data you collect, this is the app for you! The software sometimes slows down but still a solid 5 stars in my book.

Simple and effective Nice easy app to use, able to import the data into excel to get some nice plots. Used this to characterise inhaler shakes in pharmaceutical analysis.
