How Many #Sensors are in a #Drone, And What do they Do?

Accelerometers are used to determine position and orientation of the drone in flight. Like your Nintendo Wii controller or your iPhone screen position, these small silicon-based sensors play a key role in maintaining flight control. MEMS accelerometers sense movement in several ways. One type of technology senses the micro movement of very small structures embedded in a small integrated circuit. The movement of these small 'diving boards' changes the amount of electrical current moving through the structure, indicating a change of position relative to gravity.
