The ADXRS450 is an angular rate sensor (gyroscope) intended for industrial, robotics, medical, instrumentation, stabilization, and other high performance applications. It’s capable of sensing angular rate (rotation) of up to ±300°/sec.
The Gyro Board is designed to easily be integrated into your robot design. The sensor connects to the SPI port in the upper-right corner of the RoboRIO and uses built-in libraries to read sensor data. SPI Chip Select (Slave Select) is adjustable on this revision of the sensor, so it can coexist with other sensors on the SPI bus.
At the request of FIRST teams, this sensor has been made available for purchase for 2017 and is the same sensor as what was included in this year’s Kit of Parts.
