Astronomy
A NASA astronomer selected ARM Ethernet controllers to create a one-off error-correction system for an infrared telescope.
Our secondary mirror assembly would occasionally jerk. So we constructed a system using eight BMA180 accelerometers, each attached to an ARMWeb SBC.
These were then programmed to acquire and stream the accelero- meter data to a Linux server. The server would save and graph the data in real time. When an 'image jump' was recorded, this accelero-
meter data was analyzed to help identify the faulty mechanism.
