Drive straight using Proportional Compensation with Gyro sensor EV3

Drive straight using Proportional Compensation with Gyro sensor EV3

There are several ways to achieve the same results in coding. Driving in a straight line using the Gyro sensor in the EV3 Mindstorms kit can be accomplished using a technique called "Proportional Compensation". This tutorial teaches the logic behind this approach and how to implement it in your own application.

EV3 - How to drive straight using Gyro sensor.

Driving your EV3 robot forward is very simple but getting your robot to always drive straight and avoid drifting away from the target isn't that straight forward. Here's a code example to drive your robot straight using the Gyro sensor from the Mindstorms kit.

Gyro Sensor EV3 - Straight Line Program for LEGO MINDSTORMS

Gyro Sensor EV3 - Straight Line Program for LEGO MINDSTORMS

The Mindstorms EV3 code for driving straight can be accomplished using the Gyro sensor. But depending on the application these programs can become complex. Here's a basic example of how to use the Gryo sensor to make sure your robot does not drift away as it moves and follows a straight line based on the initial orientation.

Mindstorms EV3 Tutorial - Using the Gyro sensor to drive in straight line.

Mindstorms EV3 Tutorial - Using the Gyro sensor to drive in straight line.

This is my favourite EV3 code to program the Gyro sensor to drive straight. Developed and explained by Professor Kevin Briggs , this program uses a more sophisticated approach that allows you to use this bit of code as it is and include it in your existing application.

How to make your robot drive straight using the EV3 Motor Encoders - Gyro sensor free.

How to make your robot drive straight using the EV3 Motor Encoders - Gyro sensor free.

There are times when you will need to have your Gyro sensor free to accomplish other tasks like turning at an angel or detecting if the robot has been lifted. Using the Gyro sensor to drive straight in these cases could be tricky or impossible. This tutorial teaches you how to keep driving straight using the Motor Encoders instead of the Gyro sensor .
