This answer gives a good overview of what the requirements are for the turtlebot1 gyro: http://answers.ros.org/question/11574...

Looking at your gyro ( http://support.robotis.com/en/product... ) and doing a little math, it looks like it reads 1V/300 degrees/sec ~= 3.3 mV/degree/sec. Not quite as sensitive as the original gyro; you may have to make some adjustments.

There are also a number of other questions the discuss alternate gyros for the turtlebot:

Hi ahendrix, You told me that I may have to make some adjustments to work correctly with my this sensor. I'm confused, what kind of adjustments I shoud do. This gyro doesn't work for me. Using it, my maps was really a mess ! :( I need your help. Kind regard.
