Re: How would you use a gyroscope to do what a encoder does?
A gyro can measure the angular velocity, ie how fast something is turning in degrees per second. How do you propose to use this data to measure linear displacement? You could conceivably do this with an accelerometer, but it would not be trivial. It would involve a fair amount of math.
