Inertial Labs asserts that while accelerometers may be relatively unknown outside scientific and engineering circles, they play an indispensable role in our everyday lives through inertial navigation and motion sensing. Read more >>

These innovative devices measure non-gravitational acceleration, i.e., when an object moves, accelerometers detect and quantify the rate of change in velocity that it experiences. This makes them vital for everyday life, used in applications ranging from accurately tracking human movement to drone stabilization.

In essence, accelerometers consist of a housing enclosing a mass attached to a spring. When the device experiences acceleration, the mass compresses or stretches the spring, and the amount of displacement is measured to determine the level of acceleration.

  • Understanding Accelerometers
  • The Role of Accelerometers
  • Inertial Labs’ Sensor Products with Integrated Accelerometers
  • The Uses of Accelerometers in Inertial Labs Products
  • The Future of Accelerometers

From the exact navigation provided by Inertial Labs products to the prominent presence in consumer electronics, accelerometers form the foundation of motion sensing technology. As they advance, so should the capabilities of the devices and systems they empower, marking a trajectory that propels us toward an increasingly dynamic and automated future.
