Turbine engines and reciprocating engines are two distinct types of powerplants commonly used in aircraft to create the thrust, power, or propulsive force necessary for flight. While both engine types find use on countless models to this day, they operate on different principles and offer unique advantages and limitations. In this blog, we will discuss the major differences between turbine and reciprocating engines by highlighting their basic mechanisms, applications, and characteristics.

Motion sensors detect the movement of a person or object, including gravity, linear acceleration, rotation vector, vibration frequency, and more. They are often used to monitor device movements such as tilt, shake, rotation, or swing, and some frequently used sensor types are the rotation vector sensor and the gravity sensor. For example, rotation vector sensors are widely used for various motion-related tasks like monitoring movements, angular changes, and shifts in orientation. Those developing games, augmented reality applications, 2D or 3D compasses, or camera stabilization programs will find that the rotation vector sensor is particularly helpful. It is worth noting that different motion sensors use varying technologies such as infrared radiation, sound pulses, and vibration-based fluctuations to function. To learn more about various types of motion sensors and how they work, read on.

Whether traveling through land, sea, or air, all vehicles require a reliable power source to operate; yet, the loss of power is never completely avoidable, no matter how well aircraft systems work. Given the fact that power keeps aircraft in flight, losing power while in air would cause the plane to fall out of the sky. In better cases, this would cause irreversible damage to the aircraft and its passengers; however, such an occurrence would most likely cause catastrophic and fatal results. Of course, air travel is incredibly safe due to constant improvements in technology, in tandem with strictly enforced standards and regulations regarding which aircraft are deemed airworthy. As such, most aircraft have multiple backup procedures for loss of power, with Ram Air Turbines (RATs) often being a last resort. That being said, RATs find use in a number of aerospace applications to this day, those of which we will explore in the following blog.
