Accelerometer Error Sources

Hello,

 

I am looking into using an accelerometer to measure the acceleration of a vehicle.

 

Assuming Gravity forces are removed from the accelerometer readings, and the requirement is to measure accelerations in the range of  +/- 2 m/s with an accuracy of +/- 5%.

 

What are the possible major error contribution terms on an accelerometer for the given application?

 

Many Thanks.
