The wire-electric gyroscope (WEG) is a new type of the angular rate sensor. The basic principle of the WEG is based on the hypothesis of invariance of the electric current speed for the same wire (coil). It is similar to the Sagnac effect for the speed of light.

The method of angular rate determination is described. The voltage difference between two wire coils with different line coupling can be expressed in applied rotation (angular) rate and velocity of electric current. The scale factor depends on the magnitude of the current, number of the coil turns, the coil’s radius, the cross-section area of the wire and specific (unit) resistance of the wire. WEG can be produced cost-effectively and can be a good choice for low-cost applications.
