The Accelerometer sensor is an add-on for your RedBot that provides bump and motion detection. The sensor works by measuring acceleration forces on the x, y, and z axis. By measuring the amount of acceleration (or lack there of) your robot can get a better understanding of its movements.
The sensor has two 2x3 headers (one male and one female) which connect directly to the RedBot Mainboard giving you the ability to stack another I C sensor. Just use the included RedBot library to detect bumps and motion.
