Dear friends,
I need to sense the breaking & sudden acceleration of the vehicles. Please anybody advise me to select a proper sensor... Gyroscope or accelerometer?...
Both are capable to measure G-force but i am confused to select, which one is very suitable to my application.....

Thanks & regards
Udhay

Use an accelerometer to measure linear acceleration (or braking) The gyro is good for rotational measurements
