This paper presents results from the experimental evaluation of a state-of-the-art fiber-optics gyroscope. The purpose of our experiments was to evaluate the suitability of this gyroscope for enhancing dead-reckoning in mobile robots. The evaluated gyroscope was the “Autogyro Navigator” made by Andrews. For a 4×4 m square path the dead-reckoning error when using this gyro was less than ±1.2° in orientation and about 10 cm (4 in) in position
