Sale: We've released a new rev of this RedBot Accelerometer with pre-soldered headers and reduced the price of this older version. We will not stock this version again once it's gone, get it while you can!
Description: 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.
