Do you have any ideas for simple gyroscope calibration?



Yes, but let's start with they basic rule that "you will receive value in proportion to the value you invest."  In other words, getting the most performance out of a particular MEMS gyroscope will likely involve developing a higher level of expertise than is presented in this discussion, but we do understand that there is value in "what can I get, with little or no investment?"  With that in mind, start with the following articles, which offer essentially the same information, but with minor differences. They describe a calibration process that leverages a simple observation of "displacement angle," while rotating the gyroscope over a known angle. I will keep thinking about this and post any other references that I can think of.






I hope that helps!
