For a long time now, there have been discussions (read: heated-discussions) about the claims certain theme parks and manufacturers make about the forces riders will be put through on their rides and attractions.
Having come to the point where real captured data is required, the Wearware: G-Force data logger project aims to address this by being simple and usable, allowing this ultimate discussion to be finally resolved.
The Wearware: G-Force data logger will collect data from 3 axis via a SPI +/- 8G accelerometer and store data onto either an embedded flash chip or an SD card, which is yet to be decided.
This will then become part of a web accessible database, which has been in development for over two years thus far, allowing everyone to look at and come up with their own findings.
Stay tuned for more!
