Tilt sensor based on the chip RPI-1031. It is able to detect the change of orientation in one of four different directions: forward, backward, left and right. The operation is very simple and is based on a small sphere on the inside of the sensor (that you can feel move inside by shaking), two photo-transistor and an LED. Turning the device the sphere will stop light beam produced by the LED shadowing one or both phototransistor Great replacement for applications where you do not need an accelerometer, a lot cheaper, but precise and efficient. The most common applications are the detection of the movement such as a display, a digital picture frame, turning its orientation, or on mobile devices in smartphones.
