Accelerometer sensor

Hi all, i was only reading topics, but its time for me to ask something.

I was wondering (since search did not help :) did anyone use accelerometer sensor in some setup to measure wind speed?

Or any idea how to get correct reading if i place it on rotating pole?

Although that might work (you can measure the centrifugal force) I don't think that's it's feasible. A wind meter is usually measured with a hall or an optical sensor as you just need to know the number of rotations you have. If you place the accelerometer on the rotator you have to install sliding contacts for the power supply and the communication wires. You also have to take care to balance the mass of the circuit. Much work and costs without any benefit.

What are your ideas to make an accelerometer a good wind meter?
