Undamped Oscillation of Gyro

In our earlier posts, we discussed about the free gyro, Gyroscope conversion, damped oscillation and its settling period. In this post, we will discuss about undamped oscillation of Gyro. ...

Settling Period of Gyro

In our earlier posts, we discussed about the free gyro, Gyroscope conversion and its damped/undamped oscillations. In this post, we will discuss about Settling period of Gyro. When the compass is settled, the spin axis has a constant ...

Strapdown System

Lightweight digital computers permit the system to eliminate the gimbals, creating strapdown system, and are called so because their sensors are simply strapped to the vehicle. In a strapdown inertial navigation system the accelerometers are rigidly mounted parallel ...

Sagnac Effect

Sagnac effect : The Difference in path Length (∆L) is directional proportional to Angular Rotation (ω)....

Gyroscope

The word gyroscope was initially termed in 1852 by Mr. Foucault. Mr Foucault was a french scientist. ‘Gyroscope’ is the combination of two greek words ‘Gyro’ and ‘Scopien’. Gyro in greek means revolution and skopien means view. The Gyroscope ...
