Gyro

class wpilib.interfaces.Gyro(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro) → None

Bases: pybind11_builtins.pybind11_object

Interface for yaw rate gyros.

calibrate(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro) → None

Calibrate the gyro. It’s important to make sure that the robot is not moving while the calibration is in progress, this is typically done when the robot is first turned on while it’s sitting at rest before the match starts.

getAngle(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro) → float

Return the heading of the robot in degrees.

The angle is continuous, that is it will continue from 360 to 361 degrees. This allows algorithms that wouldn’t want to see a discontinuity in the gyro output as it sweeps past from 360 to 0 on the second time around.

The angle is expected to increase as the gyro turns clockwise when looked at from the top. It needs to follow the NED axis convention.

Returns

the current heading of the robot in degrees. This heading is based on integration of the returned rate from the gyro.

getRate(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro) → float

Return the rate of rotation of the gyro.

The rate is based on the most recent reading of the gyro analog value.

The rate is expected to be positive as the gyro turns clockwise when looked at from the top. It needs to follow the NED axis convention.

Returns

the current rate in degrees per second

getRotation2d(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro)wpimath.geometry.Rotation2d

Return the heading of the robot as a Rotation2d.

The angle is continuous, that is it will continue from 360 to 361 degrees. This allows algorithms that wouldn’t want to see a discontinuity in the gyro output as it sweeps past from 360 to 0 on the second time around.

The angle is expected to increase as the gyro turns counterclockwise when looked at from the top. It needs to follow the NWU axis convention.

Returns

the current heading of the robot as a Rotation2d. This heading is based on integration of the returned rate from the gyro.

reset(self: wpilib.interfaces.Gyro) → None

Reset the gyro. Resets the gyro to a heading of zero. This can be used if there is significant drift in the gyro and it needs to be recalibrated after it has been running.
