This 99 Clinometer Application is a great idea!

Do we know what the 'claimed' accuracy is and whether we can achieve close to that at home is valid?
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.

Anybody interested in measuring caster with iPhone

For anyone wanting to learn how to measure wheel caster, I have The Link:


Specifically see:

"Caster cannot be measured directly, since one cannot mount a sensor on an imaginary steering axis. Instead, caster can be computed from changes in camber as the toe angle is changed.


Equation (8) Approximate Caster = (180 /pi) X (C1 - C2) / (T2 - T1)


I will elaborate with examples here IF someone asks. _sl_
