Asked by: Damien Teney
Subject: Position gyroscopic sensors
Question: Hello everybody,
I'm new to the world of gyroscopes, but I need to use some in order to sense the attitude (yaw / pitch) of a model rocket. I'd like to use solid-state gyro sensors, but the only ones I found sense a rotation. What I need is a sensor that sense the difference of attitude between the original attitude and the current one.
I could integrate the successive rotations to get the current attitude, but the sensing errors will accumulate more more during the flight.

I don't really know if such "position" gyro sensors exists in the market, and you ? :-)

Thanks for your answers

 You need to look into tilt sensors.
