Quanser 3 DOF Gyro Experiment

Controls Research Plant

3 DOF Gyro Controls Research Plant—The Quanser 3 DOF Gyro Experiment is designed to help students develop a deep understanding of control theories through real-life applications. It includes a three-degree-of-freedom gyroscope, and it is also equipped with four DC motors and four encoders. Digital position of all the axes is measured using high-resolution optical encoders. The Quanser 3 DOF Gyro Experiment offers opportunities to study altitude control, momentum wheel control, navigation, satellite orientation, and autopilot systems.
