Tracking Acceleration

We had a good get-together on Friday Dec 5th. A big thank you to all who came. We were particularly happy to welcome three students from Modbury High School and would like to thank Gordon for bringing them over. So we got cracking, showing them around and testing some of our apps – particularly the acceleration app.

 

 

We can see them here are with a phone on the RC car which they drove around, recording acceleration. They then emailed the data that you can see in the Excel graph (yes, the app sends out Excel data now with a graph). So it was easy. The data as expected was spiky but filter options to be inserted into the Excel document will fix this.

We now know that PhoneLabs has made logging acceleration data possible, even easy, onĀ  your phones.
