Interfacing Mercury Tilt Switch with Arduino Uno

In this tutorial we will learn how to interface Tilt Sensor with Arduino Uno. As the name suggests, it is an electronic device used to detect the orientation or tilting of an object and provides digital output based on the orientation. It behaves like a normal ON - OFF switch that is controlled by tilting. Tilt sensor consists of a mercury ball and two contacts in a sealed enclosure, in which the mercury ball will short the leads based on...
