DIY Car G-Force Meter

at 9:10 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Electronic Hacks

 

If the race car driver in you would like to know how many G’s you are pulling this DIY Car G-Force Meter would give you some ideas. Use caution when testing to prevent rear end collisions. :) In the video the back seat driver in me wants to look in the rear view mirror and make sure no one is behind us… Detailed build instructions are provided so that you can easily build your own!

"The purpose of this project is to build a device that measures acceleration/tilt on one axis (backward/fordward) capable of fitting onto the dashboard or hanging onto the window of a standard car. The device will have 3 7-Segment LED Displays to show the instantaneous acceleration measurement to 2 decimal accuracy."
