Now that I had some idea of what my readings would look like and which one I wanted, it was time to dig into the Z Gyro data. I sketched out a tracking calculation that would take into account the pertinent information.
  • The reading itself
  • The interval between readings
  • The old reading
  • The rotational resolution
Blockly program for direction tracking

I plugged my variables into a Blockly equation and displayed the results. I was delighted to see that I had a reading that would change as I turned and revert as I twisted back. Ideally, I would have displayed the results with a pointer that would always point in approximately the same direction, but for a proof-of-concept, this was excellent.
