Subject: what is the out data from gyros?
Question: Hi, I wonder how you measure the outdata from gyros. ANd what kind of data you can get. I mean do you attach coils on the gyro and then measure the force that's acting on it? or how do you do it? If that's so, is the Force*radius = moment of inertia * angular acceleration? Is that correct? Can you measure both angular velocity and acceleration or can you only do one of them? and then derivate/integrate depending on which one you can measure?

Can you measure different things with different gyros? For example, rate gyros what is the data you get from them? and how do you measure it?

an other question, what is the advantages with lacer gyros?

 The output of a gyros can be voltage on variable resistor sensor which is proportional to angle of rotation or angular velocity of rotation depending on what kind of configuration this device is connected to. And gyro-device basically don't used to detect acceleration for such purpose accelerometer must be used.
