A report from a project funded by a 2018 EEFIT Research Grant.

The report describes and assesses a low-cost sensing system for recording accelerations which has been assembled taking advantage of the progress in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS).

The sensing technique described in this report has been entirely built from off-the-shelf electronic components, and its construction and programming guidelines will be provided as an open-source platform which will be continuously updated.
