A vibration gyroscope ( English Vibrating structure gyroscope , VSG) is a sensor for measuring the rate of rotation and thus the rotation angle of a body in space. The drift of inexpensive sensors amounts to less than 10 ° / h .
A vibration gyro consists of a system that can oscillate, for example an oscillating crystal . If the quartz is rotated perpendicular to the direction of deflection with the angular velocity , the Coriolis force acts
perpendicular to the oscillating system. The distortion can be detected by a piezoelectric pickup .
