Development Of Gyro Theodolite Orientation
Dec 28, 2018

In 1852, the French physicist Foucault first proposed the idea that the Earth's rotation would produce effects on the gyroscope; 'Without any astronomical or geomagnetic observations, the meridian position of any location can be obtained by gyroscope observation. '. However, due to the limitations of the technical conditions at the time, Foucault's experiment failed to achieve the expected results. Until the early nineteenth century, gyroscopes were first used as navigational instruments on navigation. In the 1950s, the gyroscope was used to conduct mine survey orientation experiments. During these 30 years, the development of the application of gyro theodolites in mine surveys can be roughly divided into three periods;
1. The liquid floating gyro compass in the 1950s.
2. The hanging gyro theodolite in the 1960s.
3. The hanging gyroscope on the shelf in the 1970s.
