    Dear Ozzmaker team,

    I want to use the BerryIMU v3 for tracking the tile/leaning angle while driving a bicycle. The inclinometer works well while the bike is in static condition, but during driving the values are not correct, I think due to the centrifugal forces that apply on the accelerometers.

    Do you have a solution for that, or do you know a project were somebody had a similar problem and found a solution?

    Thank you for your help 🙂

    Best regards,

    Pascal

    Hi Pascal, we have had someone in the past try something similar.  They wanted to measure the slope of sidewalk while moving.  As far as we know, this is not possible because the accelerometer measures acceleration in all directions and would be picking of these variations in speed as you ride around and it would skew the figures.

    You could take the measurements if you were at a constant speed or if you were not moving at all.

     

    If you find a solution, please let us know.
