at first, sorry for my english.
i'm getting started with hardware. a friend of mine is a proffessional steadycam operator (a cameraman with a device for balancing out the camera horizontally while running).
We want to make a spirit level. he's more the hardware guy and i'm more into coding, so i think
we used an "ADXL sensor".
the libra itself isn't the problem, but the centrifugal force is.
if the device sits still, it works. you can tilt it and some LEDs light up. if you move it around perfectly horizontally (!) it goes like crazy*, because we can't distinguish between centrifugal force and angle.
* "like crazy" = if you move it to the left, the right LEDs lighten up and soon thereafter it's balanced again, and vice versa. it would be important to ignore the centrifugal force, so you could run and know that the camera is horizontal.
any ideas? how can we do this? what can we use?
i hope someone understands this
