Many new micromachined angular rate sensors (gyroscopes) are now commercially available. Their rapid development has been mainly due to the automotive industry. A wide range of different devices exists and their performance is significantly improving every year while costs are falling. Much effort is now under way for large volume production. This article provides a general overview of gyroscopic sensors and also describes a novel micromachined rotating device.
