Measuring Tilt Angle with Gyro and Accelerometer

13 thoughts on “Measuring Tilt Angle with Gyro and Accelerometer”

  1. What I am looking for is something to tell me the angle off “level” that my RV (recreational vehicle) is tilting when I am climbing mountain passes. I was hoping there would be something for three dollars on ebay, but the jokes on me. Anyone know of an economical “grade meter” so to speak? Doesn’t have to be supremely accurate. Thanks!

  2. Great explanation, but i’m just wondering, what effect does increasing the number of gyroscopes has on IMU accuracy?

  3. Right here is the right blog for anyone who wishes to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been discussed for many years.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  4. May I ask what is the best angle measurement accuracy I can get with a gyro around 100 USD?

    I need something around +/- 0.01 degrees of accuracy, for a system with very low dynamic.


  5. Hallo,

    Is it possible to do correction for robot car angle deviation from straight line using IDG500 breakout gyro. I can read angular rate. But Please tell me how to implement it for angle correction.

  6. Is possible, but is not straight forward, because accelerometer give reading in acceleration, not angle, you will need to have function or sometime we call filter to obtain the right angle. Please do come to our technical forum to discuss 🙂

  7. Remember, Gyro give you angular velocity, not angular/angle. You will need to integral with time to obtain angle which involve mathematical function 🙂 Do come to our technical forum to discuss.

  8. I have a machine which rotates 210 degree and its radias is 100 cm. if I fix a accelerometer with the arm of the machine and arrange a movable cable — then is it possible to measure the angle from the analog feedback from the accelerometer. expecting reply., thanks in advance!

  9. hye,
    can I just use idg500 gyroscope to get the angle?
    I tried connect idg500 with arduino but until now can’t measure an angle,any solution for this?
    or I need to add accelerometer to my project.
