A novel gyroscope using circulatory electro-hydrodynamics flow in a confined space is presented for the first time. The configuration of the new gyroscope includes three point-ring corona discharge actuators which generate ion flows in three separated sub-channels. The three ion flows then merge together when going through a nozzle of the main chamber entrance and create a jet flow. In the new configuration, the residual charge of ion wind flow is removed by a master-ring electrode located at one end of the main chamber. Under the effect of the angular speed of gyroscope, the jet flow is deflected and this deflection is sensed using hotwires. Results, which are consistently acquired by both numerical simulation and experiment on our prototypes, demonstrate the repeatability and stability of the new approach. Since the ion wind can be generated by a minimum power, the present configuration-based device does not require any vibrating component. Thus, the device is robust, cost and energy-effective.
