Calibration : Gryo

The gyro readings, when the sensor is placed on a flat surface, do not seem to make a lot of sense to me. ( R board )

Here are a few samples:
x,y,z
0.0,0.18310546875,0.1220703125
-0.06103515625,0.244140625,0.1220703125
0.1220703125,0.1220703125,-0.244140625
-0.244140625,0.1220703125,0.244140625
-0.06103515625,0.30517578125,0.1220703125

Is it normal to see 0.3 and 0.2 at rest?

Comments

  • Yes, that is expected behavior as gyros are inherently noisy and will accumulate drift, hence why people have developed sensor fusion / filtering algorithms to correct the data.

  • So just to confirm, there is no way to even "calibrate" it to have the readings set to "zero"? I'd solely be relying on data processing to correct the data?
