MEMS technology in the field of sensors is subject with great progress. Development of new laboratory task "MEMS - accelerometer sensor" is motivated to make real contact possible to the students with the kind of sensor. The students learn the typical sensor, the microcontroller unit and the radio elements for wireless communication. During the analysis of measured results the students can consider function and quality of measured date field by the help of method of spherical geometry.
