Displacement from Acceleration data

  1. Oct 19, 2012 #1
    I was looking for some help on getting displacement from acceleration data (using an accelerometer). I found this old PF thread - https://www.physicsforums.com/archive/index.php/t-123128.html
    I am familiar with the double integration/trapezoidal integration. It isn't much help.
    The FFT method seems interesting. I don't understand it though.
    Is there an explanation of this method. Does it have a name.

    Please see FFT method mention by wolfpackdiver in the link above -
