[Curious Marc] There is an Apollo era gyroscope, but it is not ready to complete this step without some practice.So he borrowed a 1949 year Sperry C5 gyroscope And used the three-phase power supply he planned to use on another gyroscope for some experiments.
These electromechanical marvels have some troubleshooting and many gorgeous close-ups. However, they must be very noisy.
[Marc] Want a gyroscope test bench that can control the direction of the gyroscope under test. He took the auction route and obtained a fairly expensive piece of equipment at a relatively low price, but no expensive software. Fortunately, he managed to obtain the required software from vendors interested in his project. In our opinion, it is not difficult to build a table like this from scratch.
What are we interested in [Marc] Next, he will use his gyroscope. It is hard to imagine that the gyroscope has changed from this kind of device to a miniature IC inertial measurement unit that can be installed in a mobile phone. Imagine installing a Sperry device on your next walking robot or self-balancing unicycle.
Need to review the working principle of the gyroscope? We got it too. It even covers modern types.
