rate gyro

rate gyro

rate gyro
A gyro having one plane of freedom at right angles to the plane of rotation and constructed so that a calibrated spring opposes the precessive forces to indicate the rate of rotation about the plane at right angles to both the plane of rotation and the plane of freedom. A turn and slip indicator uses a rate gyro. See also rate of turn.

These sensor units provide drift-free 3D orientation as well as kinematic data: 3D acceleration (MEMS solid state sensors, capacitive readout), 3D rate gyro (MEMS solid state sensors, monolithic, beam structure, capacitive readout) and 3D earth-magnetic field (magnetometer in thin film magneto resistive technology) and are excellent measurement units for orientation and kinematic data measurements of human body segments.
