VERNIER GO DIRECT MOTION DETECTOR
Vernier's Go Direct Motion Detector uses ultrasound to measure the position, velocity and acceleration of moving objects. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.
Accurately track objects as close as 15cm and as far away as 2.5m with the Vernier Go Direct Motion Detector. Its built-in temperature compensation automatically adjusts for the difference in the speed of sound in cold and warm locations. Its unique design protects the sensor from falling objects during simple harmonic motion or free fall experiments.
Vernier's Go Direct Motion Detector can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Study position, velocity and acceleration of carts when mounted on a track.
• Match graphs created in Vernier Graphical Analysis software.
• Analyze the effects of air resistance on falling coffee filters.
• Investigate simple harmonic motion by monitoring a mass on a spring.
Rechargeable Battery — Ready When You Are
The Vernier Go Direct™ robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app Should the battery run low simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting — no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.
Wired or Wireless — The Flexibility to Choose
Vernier's Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook or computer using Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app. No additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Vernier Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
GAPRO Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro includes all the features of the free Vernier Graphical Analysis app, plus enhanced functions for more advanced analysis. Its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities inspire students to explore crucial scientific concepts and analyze data in new complex and insightful ways.
GAPRO is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.

- Warranty: 5 year limited warranty (1 year on battery)
ACSSU190 - Physical Sciences - Energy Conservation - Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
ACSSU229 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Motion - The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics
ACSPH066 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Collisions may be elastic and inelastic; kinetic energy is conserved in elastic collisions
ACSPH065 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Energy is conserved in isolated systems and is transferred from one object to another when a force is applied over a distance; this causes work to be done and changes to kinetic and/or potential energy of objects
ACSPH064 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Momentum is a property of moving objects; it is conserved in a closed system and may be transferred from one object to another when a force acts over a time interval
ACSPH063 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Newton’s Three Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the force or forces acting on an object, modelled as a point mass, and the motion of the object due to the application of the force or forces
ACSPH061 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Representations, including graphs and vectors, and/or equations of motion, can be used qualitatively and quantitatively to describe and predict linear motion
ACSPH060 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Uniformly accelerated motion is described in terms of relationships between measurable scalar and vector quantities, including displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration
ACSPH062 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Vertical motion is analysed by assuming the acceleration due to gravity is constant near Earth’s surface
ACSSU076 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance
ACSSU117 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Machines - Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object
