Product Features

This spatial board has a 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and compass and connects to your computer via USB.
Product Description

The PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 combines the functionality of a 3-axis compass, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer all in one convenient package. It is an inexpensive alternative to the 1044 - PhidgetSpatial Precision 3/3/3, and is ideal for applications where it's more important to know the general motion of an object rather than the precise amounts.

The 1042 could be used to:

  • Track whether an object is moving, and in which direction
  • Detect the presence of nearby movement or vibration
  • Track the orientation of a stationary object relative to the earth's gravitational pull and the direction relative to magnetic north
