Abstract: Accelerometers are used to measure a combination of physical parameter like “Inertia”, “Tilt/Inclination” and “Vibration or Shock”. One of the common applications for low-g accelerometer is the measurement of the terrestrial gravity to determine the inclination. Tilt sensing is increasingly used in a variety of fields like Defence, Aerospace, Industry, Transport, and Instrumentation. Some common applications in these fields are Compass correction, Platform control and stabilization, High speed train control, Antenna and radar stabilization, Weapon security system, Drilling, Building mon
