How to Identify Sensor Accuracy & Resolution

For monitoring bridge sag and sway or controlling a passenger train, nothing is more important than precision. A microradian or micro g can make the difference between a normal day in the office and a nightmare. Resolution and accuracy are two important specifications for engineers, but what exactly is the difference between the two? Why…
