Accelerometers precisions

What level of detail can we gather from the Accelerometers.

If the beacon (or rather the object the beacon is stuck to) moves very slowly (5mm over 10 minute period) would it be noticed?
Could the X-Y-Z be retrieved, what is the precision of this X-Y-Z (what is the standard deviation of precision?)


Hi Jonathan!

That is a very slow move and our accelerometer will not catch it. Our beacons show only movement and they can broadcast it via Motion UUID. X-Y-Z may be retrieved from Estimote Stickers.

Witek, I’ve a similar question. If you put an estimote sticker on a person’s wrists, ankles and shirt, could you accurately tell the relative position of their arms and legs if they moved around normally? Does it have enough resolution for that?
