Use Thunders accelerometer as a roll over switch


Recommended Posts

Maybe this is already possible and I have just not found it yet, but is there a way to use the internal accelerometer in the Thunder as a roll over switch of a sort?  Not sure if it can either respond to a specific amount of extreme acceleration in known "bad" directions or excessive amounts of (de)cceleration (hitting an immovable object) or if it can act as a gyroscope as well and known if the car goes inverted that it should shutdown the engine and fuel pumps.

Hi Adam,

Yes this would be possible. One way to do it would be to use the Vertical acceleration in conjunction with a timer to trigger a Virtual Aux channel, that would then activate a GP Limit table to kill the engine. The timer would be useful so that the GP Limit table is not triggered accidentally.
