Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors have become one of the most widely used sensors in the recent times for a variety of applications in the fields of aerospace, civil, automotive, etc. It has been recently realized that FBG based accelerometer's performance meets and/or exceeds that of traditional sensors. The present work is about the development of a novel, real-time, dynamic two dimensional Accelerometer employing FBG sensors. The proposed FBG Accelerometer works on the principle of inertial mass acceleration which in turn produces strain variations on the adjoining cantilevers, obtained using the FBG sensors bonded over it. The proposed device facilitates compact size and low fabricating cost along with the inherent advantages of FBG sensor, making it an effective device for measuring acceleration.
