This project uses three adcl335 accelerometers to gather acceleration data from a moving object to which they are attached. All of the data passes through a multiplexer before being wirelessly transmitted to an Arduino microcontroller to be written into a text file on a computer. From here the data can be passed to a program written in Java3D that will read the data, convert it into displacement, and model the movement of the object in a 3-Dimensional Virtual Universe.
