Crash Detection Using IMU Sensors

Abstract

More than 50% of the motorcycle accidents are fatal for the rider. 70% of those are due to the time needed for the emergency service to arrive at the accident. This leads us to a necessity in finding a device able to detect accidents. This document explains how to use the MPU6050 IMU sensor in an embedded device for measuring the Euler angles (roll, pitch, yaw) and also the G Forces on different axes.
