Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present our design of an integrated optics rotation sensor (IORS). Based on rugged glass-on-silicon technology, this gyro represents a versatile, low cost approach to high tech commercialization. The IORS is suited for a number of applications, including robotics, navigation, and guidance, and as an automotive safety device. In terms of compactness and ease of use, the IORS presents an improved approach to rotation sensing over other gyro technologies. In this paper, we present the basic operation of the gyro, along with a brief explanation of its use as an automotive yaw sensor.
