Product Information for Vernier Software MD-BTD Motion Sensor
Highlights for Vernier Software MD-BTD Motion Sensor
- Connectivity Technology:Cable
- Distance Supported:19.68 ft
The MD-BTD Motion Sensor uses ultrasound to measure distance. Ultrasonic pulses are emitted by the Motion Detector, reflected from a target, and then detected by the device. The time it takes for the reflected pulses to return is used to calculate position, velocity, and acceleration. This allows you to study the motion of objects such as a person walking, a ball in free fall, or a cart on a ramp.
