Title: Motion sensor and method of making same

Abstract: A motion sensor for monitoring the activity of a body in motion includes apair of force detecting sensors capable of detecting both magnitude anddirection of an applied force. These sensors are configured to enabletranslational or rotational motion resulting from travel in a vehicle tobe suppressed from any general motion signal leaving only a rotational ortranslational component. The active compensation of an electrical circuitis provided to aid in the calibration of a non-ideal sensor pair andreduce the leakage of translational motion into rotational motion orrotational motion into translational motion due to any differences betweenthe pair.
