NIST Inventors
Gregory W. Vogl
An inertial measurement unit determines performance degradation of a linear axis and includes: an accelerometer that, when disposed on a motion member of the linear axis including the motion member and a base member: measures acceleration of the motion member; and provides a displacement of the

Wireless Fire Hose Flow Rate Apparatus And Measuring Flow Rate In A Fire Hose

NIST Inventors
Gregory W. Vogl , Wai Cheong Tam and Christopher U Brown
A wireless sensor network was used to measure water-flow rate in a fire hose. An accelerometer was chosen as the sensor to measure the flow rate based on the vibrations generated by water flowing through a fire hose close to the hose nozzle. These sensors are small, lightweight, and can attach to
