Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) are playing a significant role in industry because of their small size, small weight, and low power consumption. The vibrating gyroscope is one of those MEMS devices that will have significant impact in stability control of cars. This paper studies the design and control of a vibrating gyroscope. The device has been constructed in Pro-E environment and its model has been simulated in finite element domain in order to approximate its dynamic characteristics with a lumped model. An adaptive feedback control system that guarantees the stability of the device and consistent measurement of angular velocity has been constructed and simulated.
