hi..we are a graduation project team works on the turtlebot ..we already bought icreate robot and we designed the the rest plates of the turtlebot and we had the sdk as it is available and on our way to start calibration we found that we have to know our gyro part number which as the following tutorial Calibrate Odometry and Gyro how can we know our gyro part number through our icreate robot base ??

answer was as Mr Ryan said :

"The iCreate robot does not have a gyro built in. You'll need to purchase a power board separately"

Editing :-

**Am i still able to perform navigation and VSLAM without the gyro sensor ?**

Do you have access to the gyro board? You probably have to look at the actual sensor, it's definitely written there. In this board, for instance, the gyro would be the silver square on the bottom right corner of the board.

that what i am talking about at the tutorial he is showing the board which i thought it is within the base and i don't have the access to it but MR.Ryan said below that i have to buy it separately and i just noticed that "Only necessary if you have a Create base which is using an external gyro."
