This lesson has two resources.

The primary instructional materials are the PowerPoint/pdf files from EV3Lessons.

The PowerPoint (and pdf version) contains all the information needed for the lesson.  The corresponding EV3 code includes the various gyro calibration techniques.  Sometimes, additional helpful tips are included the PowerPoint.  Students should use both materials.

  1. The lesson describes gyro drift and lag and proposes different calibration techniques for dealing with drift.
  2. Students should use the PowerPoint file and replicate the EV3 code.
  3. It is important that students read the comments.
  4. The lesson cover 4 calibration strategies to deal with gyro drift.

Ensure students can explain the purpose and functionality of each calibration technique.
