The aim of a gyroscope is to determine how much a robot has rotated during a certain time. This is very common to use a gyroscope module on a robot. For example, on a balancing robot (much like the Segway) or for an autopilot on a flying robot.
Gyroscope module - Technical specifications
The LISY300 Gyroscope Module is a single-axis yaw rate sensor providing up to 300°/s full scale rotation detection at up to 88 Hz. Useful in balancing robots or auto-pilot systems, the LISY300 Gyroscope Module can detect how many degrees it has turned on its planar axis allowing the host microcontroller to stabilize the platform or correct for drift.
