Gyroscope !!HOT!!

Sensor readings provided by inertial sensors, such as gyroscope, could be used by adversariesto exploit various security threats, for example, keylogging, location tracking, fingerprinting, user identifying and even eavesdropping.



The Gyroscope is a powerful feature that is identified by the name "gyroscope", which is also its associated sensor permission name. Its permission revocation algorithm is theresult of calling the generic sensor permission revocation algorithm with"gyroscope".

The Gyroscope functionality works by calling the Start and Stop methods to listen for changes to the gyroscope. Any changes are sent back through the ReadingChanged event in rad/s. Here is sample usage:

A new method of evaluating the characteristics of postural transition (PT) and their correlation with falling risk in elderly people is described. The time of sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit transitions and their duration were measured using a miniature gyroscope attached to the chest and a portable recorder placed on the waist. Based on a simple model and the discrete wavelet transform, three parameters related to the PT were measured, namely, the average and standard deviation of transition duration and the occurrence of abnormal successive transitions (number of attempts to have a successful transition). The comparison between two groups of elderly subjects (with high and low fall-risk) showed that the computed parameters were significantly correlated with the falling risk as determined by the record of falls during the previous year, balance and gait disorders (Tinetti score), visual disorders, and cognitive and depressive disorders (p

At first glance, gyroscopes are pretty strange objects. They move in peculiar ways and seem to defy gravity. The special properties of these devices have made them an invaluable asset in airplanes, space stations, and a variety of other technologies that have to deal with spin.

According to the English Oxford Dictionary, a gyroscope is a "device consisting of a wheel or disc mounted so that it can spin rapidly about an axis which is itself free to alter in direction. The orientation of the axis is not affected by the tilting of the mounting."

Perhaps you've played with gyroscopes as a child? Maybe you have a fidget spinner? If so, you'll remember how they can perform lots of interesting tricks. You can balance one on a string or your finger whilst it is in motion, for example.

You can even tilt it at an angle when suspended from a stand, and it will appear to levitate, albeit whilst orbiting the stand. Even more impressively, you can lift up a gyroscope with a piece of string around one end.

This phenomenon is also known as gyroscopic motion or gyroscopic force, and it has proved to be very useful indeed for us humans. These terms refer to the tendency of a rotating object, not just a gyroscope, to maintain the orientation of its rotation.

This results in the entire rotational axis finding a "middle ground" between the influence of gravity and its own angular momentum vector. Now, remember that the gyroscope apparatus is being stopped from falling towards the center of gravity by something in the way -- like your hand, the frame/gimbals, or a table, for example.

In order to fully answer this question, we need to assess how each device works. Since we have already covered the gyroscope in some detail above, let's check out what an accelerometer is and how it works.

There are even more methods, including the use of the piezoresistive effect, hot air bubbles, and light, to name but a few. So, as you can see, accelerometers and gyroscopes are very different beasts indeed.

In essence, the main difference between the two is that one can sense rotation, whereas the other cannot. Since gyroscopes work through the principle of angular momentum, they are perfect for helping indicate an object's orientation in space.

Taking advantage of something called the Sagnac effect, these devices use beams of light to provide a similar function to mechanical gyroscopes. The effect was first demonstrated in 1911 by Franz Harris, but it was French scientist Georges Sagnac who correctly identified the cause.

The interesting properties of gyroscopes have provided scientists and engineers with some fascinating applications. Their ability to maintain a particular orientation in space is fantastic for some applications.

In modern aircraft, inertial guidance systems make good use of these relatively simple devices. They have a suite of spinning gyroscopes to monitor and control the orientation of the aircraft in flight. Spinning gyroscopes are kept in special cages that allow them to keep their orientation, independently of the orientation of the aircraft.

The gyroscope cages have electrical contacts and sensors that can relay information to the pilot whenever the plane rolls or pitches. This lets the pilot and guidance systems "know" the plane's current relative orientation in space.

The Mars Rover also has a set of gyroscopes. They provide the Rover with stability as well as aid with navigation. They also have applications in drone aircraft and helicopters, in providing stability and helping with navigation.

Another interesting application of gyroscopes is for the guidance systems of cruise and ballistic missiles. Used to automatically steer and correct roll, pitch, and yaw, gyroscopes sensors have been used for this purpose since the German V-1 and V-2 missiles of World War 2.

Typically, missiles will carry at least two gyroscopes for this purpose, with each gyro providing a fixed reference line from which any deviations can be calculated. One reference tends to include the spin axis of a vertical gyroscope.

Another interesting application of gyroscopes is for the inertial guidance systems of orbital spacecraft. Such small craft requires a high degree of precision when it comes to stabilization, and gyroscopes are pretty much perfect for the job.

A device called a "Steadicam" was used to film certain scenes in the film Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi (as well as in many other movies). This device, used in conjunction with several gyroscopes, held the camera stable when filming the background shots for the famous speeder bike chase on Endor.

Modern game consoles also tend to include some form of gyroscope too. From the Wii Remote to various Playstation 3 and 4 peripherals, gyroscopes have opened up an entirely new way to play computer games.

Yet another interesting application of gyroscopes in our everyday lives is in drones. For these devices to fly perfectly they require gyroscopes, among other devices, to be able to hover and fly level.

Many different sensory devices are used to determine the position and orientation of an object. The most common of these sensors are the gyroscope and the accelerometer. Though similar in purpose, they measure different things. When combined into a single device, they can create a very powerful array of information.

A gyroscope is a device that uses Earth's gravity to help determine orientation. Its design consists of a freely-rotating disk called a rotor, mounted onto a spinning axis in the center of a larger and more stable wheel. As the axis turns, the rotor remains stationary to indicate the central gravitational pull, and thus which way is "down."

"One typical type of gyroscope is made by suspending a relatively massive rotor inside three rings called gimbals," according to a study guide by Georgia State University. "Mounting each of these rotors on high quality bearing surfaces insures that very little torque can be exerted on the inside rotor."

The gyroscope maintains its level of effectiveness by being able to measure the rate of rotation around a particular axis. When gauging the rate of rotation around the roll axis of an aircraft, it identifies an actual value until the object stabilizes out. Using the key principles of angular momentum, the gyroscope helps indicate orientation. In comparison, the accelerometer measures linear acceleration based on vibration.

The typical two-axis accelerometer gives users a direction of gravity in an aircraft, smartphone, car or other device. In comparison, a gyroscope is intended to determine an angular position based on the principle of rigidity of space. The applications of each device vary quite drastically despite their similar purpose. A gyroscope, for example, is used in navigation on unmanned aerial vehicles, compasses and large boats, ultimately assisting with stability in navigation. Accelerometers are equally widespread in use and can be found in engineering, machinery, hardware monitoring, building and structural monitoring, navigation, transport and even consumer electronics.

A gyroscope would be used in an aircraft to help in indicating the rate of rotation around the aircraft roll axis. As an aircraft rolls, the gyroscope will measure non-zero values until the platform levels out, whereupon it would read a zero value to indicate the direction of "down." The best example of reading a gyroscope is that of the altitude indicator on typical aircrafts. It is represented by a circular display with the screen divided in half, the top half being blue in color to indicate sky, and the bottom being red to indicate ground. As an aircraft banks for a turn, the orientation of the display will shift with the bank to account for the actual direction of the ground.

Gyros, similar to the one above, can be used to determine orientation and are found in most autonomous navigation systems. For example, if you want to balance a robot, a gyroscope can be used to measure rotation from the balanced position and send corrections to a motor.

A triple axis MEMS gyroscope, similar to the one pictured above (ITG-3200), can measure rotation around three axes: x, y, and z. Some gyros come in single and dual axis varieties, but the triple axis gyro in a single chip is becoming smaller, less expensive, and more popular. 041b061a72
