Let’s begin!

An ADXL335 is an analog accelerometer that gives the values of acceleration in three axes – X, Y, and Z.



As the ADXL335 has three analog outputs and the NodeMCU has only one analog input – A0, we will use an analog multiplexer (MUX) to allow us to send data from three analog channels to one analog channel. For this project, we will use a 16-channel MUX.
