App note: Detecting human falls with 3-axis accelerometers

Posted on Sunday, November 11th, 2012 in app notes by DP

Here is an article from Analog Devices discussing the theory and application of detecting human falls with 3-axis accelerometers. While the article focuses on the ADXL345 3-axis accelerometers, the theory and principle behind it can be applied to other devices as well.

This article, based on research into the principles of fall detection for an individual body, proposes a new solution for detection of fall situations utilizing the ADXL345, a 3-axis accelerometer from Analog Devices.
