Gyro Sensors

I was just wondering is anyone could actually fully explain how to use gyro sensors. I am unsure of how they work.

They show how much you have spinned, from 0 degrees to 359 degrees. Keep in mind that the sensor isn’t perfect, and it can have some errors.
Here’s some diagrams.

This one shows the robot has turned 90 degrees.

This one shows the robot has turned 300 degrees.


so its like a measurement? so if you dont use it, what will your robot be lacking and how important is a gyro

It is a very useful way of making your turns accurate. In VEXcode IQ, you can configure your drivertrain to have a Gyro. The Turn To Heading and Turn degrees will then be more accurate.
