how can i analyze a signal with three coordinates

Asked by Lisa Justin on 17 Jul 2012

i have a signal from an accelerometer with 3 coordinates x,y, z. how do i analyze this signal so i have all three cordinates? Do you think taking an average of all three is right? Or should i just sum all three cordinates? or treat them uniquely for each direction
