Plotting 2D and 3D G-force Vectors in LabVIEW

If you’ve enjoyed the previous posts about making a simple accelerometer and filtering out noise from it in LabVIEW, then we have good news — there’s another project by . This one is a guide to plotting 2D and 3D g-force vectors in LabVIEW.

As with the previous projects in this series, you will need a chipKIT Max32, a PmodACL, a breadboard, and access to LabVIEW and LINX.

This Instructable teaches how to calculate vectors from accelerometer data, specifically the following vectors: the XY 2D vector, the ZY 2D vector, the ZX 2D vector, and the XYZ 3D vector. Davis provides the code for the vector calculations and for the plots.

Gotta love LabVIEW! There are so many things to do in it and with it. What’s your favorite LabVIEW project?
