Wireless Smart Cart Red



This is the red version.  The red and blue carts have identical functionality and performance.

The all new Smart Cart has onboard sensors and transmits position, velocity, acceleration and force data wirelessly whether on or off the track. 

25 years ago PASCO developed a revolutionary dynamics cart and we've continued to make refinements and improvements over the years.  But now we've taken a great leap forward. 

The New Smart Cart (patent pending) 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. And 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.


Typical Applications

  • Kinematics
  • Acceleration on an incline (determining g)
  • Newton's Laws
  • Impulse
  • Conservation of Momentum
  • Elastic & Inelastic Collisions
  • Conservation of Energy
  • Simple Harmonic Oscillators (using the spring set)
  • Magnetic damping (using the Magnetic Damping Bumper)
  • And much more!

Special Features

  • Built-in ±100 N force sensor
  • 3-axis accelerometer
  • Motion encoder (for measuring position & velocity on or off a track)
  • Bluetooth® connectivity
  • No interface required!
  • Rechargeable battery

  • Hook
  • Rubber Bumper
  • Magnetic Bumper
  • USB cable (for charging)


Compatibility/System requirements for PASCO Bluetooth Smart products

Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth Smart devices.

Windows computers/tablets and Chromebooks currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth Smart devices.

Full compatibility details are available, including compatibility information for older computing devices.
