Summary An angle measuring device using a high performance and very compact accelerometer provides a new and exciting method for producing highly compact and accurate angle measuring devices. Accelerometers are micro-machined and are able to measure acceleration to a very high accuracy. By using gravity as a reference these compact devices can also be used for measuring angles of rotation. The inherent problem with these devices is that their response characteristic changes with temperature which is detrimental to measurement accuracy. This paper describes an effective method to overcome this problem using a temperature sensor and intelligent software to compensate for this drift characteristic. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of this work, experiments have been developed and conducted with the results and analysis provided at the end
of this paper for discussion.
