Function and Applications

The Cobra4 Sensor-Unit motion measures position, velocity and acceleration of an object moving in one dimension, e.g. a cart on a demonstration track. The measurement is performed via an ultrasound sensor. 


  • Contact-free measurement of position, velocity and acceleration
  • Direct display and calculation of the measured values
  • The movement of different objects can be analyzed, e.g. carts on a demonstration track, students in the classroom, bouncing balls etc.
