Abstract

We previously proposed a concept of a novel liquid rate gyroscope using electro-conjugate fluid (ECF) [11]. The ECF is a dielectric fluid which works here as a functional/smart fluid generating a powerful jet flow under a strong DC electric field. The ECF liquid rate gyroscope proposed uses the drift of the ECF jet due to Coriolis force when an angular rate is applied. The contribution of the proposed concept on gyroscope technology is to provide a possibility for a low cost micro gyroscope with impact resistance. To move beyond a mere laboratory curiosity, this paper describes a practical design of ECF liquid rate gyroscope and performance evaluations. The results of experiments and Allan Variance Analysis show the gyroscope could possibly be a next generation standard of micro gyroscope.
