The near-weightless technology in the accelerometers can control the flow of highway and runway traffic, analyze a golf pro’s swing, orient the next generation of smart phones, and keep fighter jets and missiles on target.
Krylov and his team of researchers have incorporated a mechanical amplification, a sort of a miniature clock hand, to generate a larger signal output, thereby reducing the devices’ noise and improving their sensitivity.
Currently, the device is about one millimeter in diameter, but Krylov promises that in the future it will be manufactured at an even smaller size.
