Asked by: Antoine
Subject: Comparing the output from two gyros
Question: Hi there guys,
Just a hobbyist working with MEMS gyros and had this question. Say I had a gyro attached to two different devices. (i.e. One gyro per device), with each gyro outputting a yaw, roll and pitch angle.

I would then effectively have two planes (one for each of my devices) in 3D space.

How would I got about finding the angle between the two planes created? What maths would I refer to? I know how I could do this if I had the cartesian xyz equation of the planes, but how could I do it when I only have the yaw, pitch and roll angles with no equation?
