Can you confirm that AccelX forward?

Post by davef_dci »


Our MK3 is mounted "conventionally" (upright on the dash with the front panel facing towards the driver).

In looking at our telemetry, AccelZ is clearly up and down but I'm not positive which of the Accelerations is in the direction the car is travelling - I'm assuming this is AccelX and AccelY is lateral acceleration.

Can someone please confirm this? Thanks!

Hi Dave,

AccelY is lateral acceleration (side to side) and AccelX is longitudinal acceleration (forward / back).

Hope this helps!
