RedBot Sensor - Accelerometer (Sparkfun SEN-11770)
The Accelerometer sensor is an add-on for your RedBot that provides bump and motion detection. The sensor works by measuring acceleration forces on the x, y, and z axis. By measuring the amount of acceleration (or lack there of) your robot can get a better understanding of its movements.
The sensor has a 2x3 unpopulated footprint which connects directly to the RedBot Mainboard via a female header. You can also solder the sensor directly to the headers on the Mainboard if you wish. Just use the included RedBot library to detect bumps and motion.
Dimensions: 0.45 x 0.69 " (11.53 x 17.72 mm)
