Unit 2 - Motion
The purpose of these labs is to use the Arduino ultrasound sensor setup to study constant velocity and constant acceleration. Later we will develop a compact Arduino Box with distance and acceleration sensors, which can monitor its motion and wirelessly transmit the data that it collects in real time. Then we apply it to study various linear motion.

Post-Lab Week 3
- Due at 11:59pm on Sunday week 3
Pre-Lab Week 4
In this pre-lab we will focusing on understanding and calibrating the accelerometer. Calibrating the accelerometer is more complicated compared to the distance (ultrasonic) sensor. The pre-lab will go over some basics and you will have to solve a few problems and submit the answers on Gradescope.
