The market for gyroscopes is still growing, according to Bouchaud. “Optical range stabilization use cases are very important for taking pictures under low light conditions or when walking,” he said. “This is really emerging now. HTC and Nokia and LG have it. Camera phones from Samsung have it as well. ”The gyroscope is getting into smartphones via the camera module. For indoor navigation, when you don’t have any GPS signal, motion sensors, especially gyroscopes, could be used to determine location. “This is an interesting application as well.”
