in·cli·nom·e·ter

(in'kli-nom'ĕ-tĕr),
Obsolete instrument for determining the direction of the ocular axes in astigmatism.
[L. in- clino, to incline, + G. metron, measure]

inclinometer

(in?kli-nom'et-er) [ incline + -meter]
1. A device for measuring ocular diameter from vertical and horizontal lines.
2. A device for measuring angles among different body parts, e.g., specific bones or joints. It can be used to determine the relative motion of these structures during active or passive bending. Synonym: bubble goniometer

In this section, we introduce the main concepts related to this paper and provide basic theories of heading determination using sun sensor, inclinometer, and local clock.
The dual-axis inclinometer selected for the experiment (Posital Fraba ACS-060) provides as output the direction sines of the gravity vector (g) with respect to [[??].sub.i] (call the angle X) and [[??].sub.i] (call the angle Y), that is,
Since the new device is a modified version of an existing inclinometer with an extended arm, we aimed to assess the intra-examiner reliability of the device.
A CX-4C inclinometer was used to measure the deformation of the pipe-roof in the tunnel exiting portal.
During testing, two types of COFT were used to measure displacement of sliding surface; an inclinometer monitoring internal movement of the slope mass was compared to COFTs.
Another application was electronic inclinometer (inclinometer application on a smartphone).
Beyond the load and mix functions and inclinometer, he adds, the SCT system provides concrete producers:
The measurement of rotations was carried out with the patient lying supine on the table, his arm was abducted at 90[degrees], the inclinometer was settled on the metal plate secured to the back of the wrist thanks to the Velcro.
Concretely, the acceleration data of 3 axes of accelerometer are given behind the abbreviation "ACC", following with a temperature measured by an embedded thermometer; the number behind "BATT" shows the current voltage from the external power supply; "INC" leads a spontaneous data set from the two orthogonal inclinometers. To ensure the digital accuracy after transmission, the units of the data from the accelerometer, the battery and the inclinometer are chosen as mm/[s.sup.2],mV and [micro]m/[s.sup.2] .
Designed for use in outdoor applications, the inclinometers are sealed up to IP68 standards.
