EV3 basics course. Gyro Sensor. Why is the robot turning to a different angle (part 2)

Turning with the Gyro Sensor on a specified angle and stopping there have never been easy. It is not going to get any better. However, this is not a problem of the Gyro sensor. The problem is in the way we develop our programs.

No matter what your robot is when you turn at 90 degrees with the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Gyro sensor it would almost always stop at 90+ or 90- degrees. This makes using the sensor difficult and error prone. The solution requires you to understand how sensors work. Not only this, but also the Touch, Color, Ultrasonic sensors.
