Re: Accelerometer integration

Integrating the acceleration is pretty straightforward; dimensional analysis tells you that all you need to do is multiply your acceleration by your time element (if you're in user_routines, that would be 0.0262 seconds) to get velocity, and multiply your velocity by your time element to get your distance.

I would be careful with that, though, I've been having quite a time trying to get the acceleration to integrate accurately.
