Yes an accelerometer is a sensor, you have several in your car for accident purposes, and one in your phone to stop it if you drop it. Also used in computers to stop hard drives if you drop the computer, a spinning hard disk is not good on hard contact with the ground.

I was asked to answer some questions about the boat, because for some reason people believe I know a bit about wooden boats having built several and I know a lot about accelerometers. The gunboat has a cannon on the front deck and that is the first question, should they remove it, 8 minutes with an accelerometer and I said no. The building is shaking like crazy the cannon is so heavy it stops the boat shaking in sympathy, a dead weight damper, a bit like a bell in a church, both are dangerous in wrong hands, engineering material do not like shaking, like you should never shake a baby.

I tried to join the facebook group but no reply.

The new Enola Holmes is really good, watch it with your grandchildren.

The end is perfect.
