accelerometer accelerometer  /æk ˌsɛ lə ˈrɑ mə tər/

Definition(s):

  • (n) an instrument for measuring the acceleration of aircraft or rockets

Usage(s):

  1. Touch sensitive, with an onboard, motion-sensing accelerometer that can also place a user precisely on a Google satellite map, the device resembles nothing so much as an iPhone.
  2. To work properly, the accelerometer cylinders must lie at right angles to the earth's radius lines; i.
  3. Also a cluster of aviation-grade gyros, an accelerometer, a bevy of sensors, two batteries and software so sophisticated it puts Microsoft to shame.
