Check Wiki definitions first: gyroscope.
Important to remember:
See live IMU performance: revolving cube – this functionality is for our R&D purposed is not available in the Dashboard by default. But you can easily see the gyroscope and accelerometer graphs in the Dashboard:
Notice, that our beacons do not have magnetometers inside, though, it could be possible to quite easily connect them to a Super-Beacon via an available I2C or UART or SPI interface. We do not recommend using magnetometers indoor, because of potential high distortion of the Earth magnetic field by ferromagnetic metals indoor, by the ferromagnetic metal body of your mobile object and by the magnetic fields of currents of wiring indoor or your mobile devices.
Instead, we recommend using the Paired Beacons: you install two or more mobile beacons on your mobile objects with as large base as your mobile object can provide and enjoy very accurate direction data even in static:
GPS does not provide direction either. GPS gives just a location – not direction.
It is possible to get direction with only a single beacon and IMU:
You can get IMU data from:
