What is a accelerometer sensor?
An accelerometer is a motion sensor that detects the change in speed of a device. In Amazon tablets, the accelerometer measures the tilt and orientation of the device in relation to gravity. This allows the device to rotate the screen orientation based on how the tablet is held.
How Accelerometer Sensors Work in Amazon Tablets
Accelerometer Sensor: A device used to measure acceleration forces, such as the force of gravity, in a Amazon tablet. It can also be used to measure changes in speed and direction. Gravity: A force that constantly pulls objects towards the center of the Earth. Force: A push or pull on an object that causes it to accelerate.
An Amazon tablet with an accelerometer sensor is able to detect motion and orientation changes in 3D space. The accelerometer sensor can detect changes in motion such as tilt, shake and rotation. The accelerometer sensor has been used in Amazon tablets since 2011 to enable features such as auto-rotation.
