Lilypad Arduino ADXL335 three axis acceleration sensor module
- Detect Movement, Inclination and Vibration with your Lilypad Arduino
- Can even detect joint movement
- Designed for wearable projects,, hundreds of real world applications
This is a three axis accelerometer for the LilyPad system. Based on the ADXL335 MEMS accelerometer from Analog Devices, the LilyPad Accelerometer can detect joint movement as well as inclination and vibration.
The ADXL335 outputs a 0V to 3V analog signal on each of the X, Y, and Z axis. You will need to convert this analog voltage to a gravity amount and use trigonometry to calculate a true 'angle'. If you are not looking for tilt, it is very easy to use this sensor for basic motion sensing.
LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology. They're even washable!
