MOBILE DEVICES AS ACCELERATION RECORDERS


Abstract

The paper investigates possibility of using mobile devices as acceleration recorders. Presented research focuses on mobile devices running three mobile platforms: Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Three mobile applications are created in order to measure the acceleration in three directions (X,Y,Z). Prior to data recording all devices are calibrated. Additionally the Android application allows for converting the results from device’s to world’s coordinate system. The results are presented in graphs.
