We present for the first time a novel gyroscope using circulatory electro-hydrodynamics flow in a confined space. Three point-ring corona actuator is to generate ionic flows in three separated channels and the ionic flows then merge together at a nozzle of the main chamber to create a jet flow. The residual charge of ion winds is removed by a master-ring electrode. By the effect of angular rate, the jet flow handled by a hotwire anemometry is deflected and sensed. Results by both experiment and numerical simulation consistently show good repeatability and stability of the new configuration-based device. Since ion wind is generated by a minimum power, the device does not require any vibrating component, thus the device is robust, low cost and energy consumption.
