Vibration sensor for Mems Accelerometers

Accelerometers measure linear acceleration and are also used for other purposes such as inclination and vibration measurement.

MEMS accelerometers embed several useful features for motion and acceleration detection, including free-fall, wakeup, single/double-tap recognition, activity/inactivity detection, and 6D/4D orientation.
