PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 Basic
This spatial board has a 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and compass and connects to your computer via USB.
Note: The 1042_0B is identical to the 1042_0, except that it comes pre-assembled in a plastic shell enclosure and you have the option of which length of USB cable you want to include.
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
