The PASCO Smart Cart is the ultimate tool for studying kinematics, dynamics and more. It is based on a durable ABS body with nearly frictionless wheels just like our high quality PAScars. But now we’ve added built-in sensors that measure force, position, velocity, and 6 degrees of freedom in acceleration. The Smart Cart can make these measurements on or off a dynamics track and transmit the data wirelessly over Bluetooth®.
The most advanced physics cart ever created and all without the hassle and restrictions of cables. Best of all, the Smart Cart represents a huge cost savings over having to purchase all the components (cart, several sensors, an interface) separately.
The PASCO Smart Cart was taken through its paces in the April 2018 edition of The Physics Teacher.
In this unsolicited review, professors Shakur and Rainor examined the use of the Smart Cart in traditional mechanics experiments.
"The convenience and simplicity of not getting tangled up in the cluter of all those wires cannot be overstated. We expect the smart cart to usher in a paradigm shift in undergraduate physics laboratory instruction."
Fourteen great ideas for using the PASCO Wireless Smart Cart in your physics lab. Plus one bad one.
Use the Wireless Smart Cart and SPARKvue software to measure the impact force of a collision, then see how the impact can be reduced with student designed bumpers and barriers.
See how PASCO's innovative Wireless Smart Cart can measure position, velocity, acceleration, force, and more, both on and off a track.
