1.6: Gyroscope

When you made your remote control, Zumi turned left or right using the number of degrees that you gave as a parameter. How does Zumi know how many degrees she is turning? Zumi is equipped with an MPU, or motion processing unit, and has two very important sensors that are necessary for driving straight and making accurate turns: the gyroscope and accelerometer. This lesson is about the gyroscope.
