New dynamics cart includes onboard sensors that wirelessly transmit position, velocity, acceleration and force data, whether on or off the track


PASCO Scientific has released a new solution for quantitative forces and motions experiments for physics and physical science: the PASCO Smart Cart.

The carts are designed to help teach concepts in forces and motion. Currently, many schools utilize low-friction dynamics carts and tracks, and then attach sensors to allow students to collect data from their experiments.

The new carts, however, take all of the sensor technology previously connected via lengthy wires and embed it directly into the cart. Its onboard sensors...
