A linear accelerometer. If the device is moving at constant velocity, the mass (1), supported on a bar by springs (2), remains static and an intermediate reading is registered on the potentiometer (3). On acceleration in the direction of the bar (4), i.e., along the accelerometer's sensitive axis, i...

An Accelerometer is generally used for measuring acceleration. Within a mobile phone the accelerometer detects the motion of the handset, and will auto rotate the display to show in landscape rather than portrait mode when the phone is rotated 90 degrees. This is ideal for viewing photos on the phon...
