Is this accelerometer something like two flat plates that slide against each other? You have to ride the bike onto then brake??

This is what's replacing the roller in the floor apparently at all future MOT stations, well that's what my MOT man said.

No I thinks its a round canister that measure brake force as per "G" force.

Saw one years ago testing the brakes in a car. The tester just placed it on the floor. Not sure how they would do a bike.
It wasn't me !!

For what it's worth I had a similar problem with brakes pulsing and found the issue to be one disc pad sticking.  only found when I removed the front wheel and checking pads with one pad half the thickness of the remaining seven.  Cleaned the caliper(s), put rubber (small amount) on the piston rubbers and replaced pads and problem went away. Bike had done approx 39,000 at that stage with now 56,000k problem has not resurfaced.
No such thing as bad weather - just inappropriate clothing.
