# The difference between inclinometer and gyro sensor

Dec 28, 2017 The inclinometer is known as the induction bias Angle, and only the data feedback is not feedback.

The gyroscope is measuring angular velocity, sensing action variables, and then controlling the steering gear to repair action commands.

Inclinometer using the Newton's second law as the principle of work, according to the law, we know that when the inclinometer static, due to the side of the object and the vertical direction is by other forces, only the effect of gravity, that is to say, effect on it is only the gravitational acceleration. So the Angle between the vertical axis of gravity and the sensitive axis of the acceleration sensor is what we call the Angle of inclination, which is the Angle we want. The tilt sensor is divided into three different working principles and is divided into three types. The first type of tilt sensor is a solid pendulum, the second dip sensor is called a liquid pendulum, and the last inclination sensor is a gas pendulum. These three different types of tilt sensors have different working principles because of how they work.
Any type of
inclinometer will be very different from a gyroscope. Like the inclinometer, whatever it is, it's measuring the Angle of rest. Compared with the tilt sensor, the gyroscope measures the dip Angle of the motion, and the measurement results are not accurate. So when we measure the dip in our daily life, whether it's a dip inclinometer or a gyroscope, we can choose from that. The measurement is the Angle of static, which is to choose the dip inclinometer, which measures the inclination of the motion, which is the choice of gyroscope.
