DIY – How to build your own G-Force Meter!

Remember I did a G-Force Meter couple years ago? Here’s another cool DIY G-Force meter. The only difference it that it uses 7-segment display and a PIC18F series microcontroller.

After seeing so many applications using acceleromters making a simple project of my own with this cool sensor just seemed natural.
The main application of the accelerometer is either for sensing tilt or sensing acceleration. For this application A G-Force meter for my car will be made to see how many “G’s” I pull while driving.

    Wow! G-force is the force of gravity right? So this device measures the force of gravity working on the moving car?

    Yup, it does measure the gravity of any moving object, including planes too.
