Can a gyroscopic sensor (comparable to the type that are typically used in smartphones) that is embedded in this black object
that is rotating around the X axis measure the number of rotations around the X axis if the object may or may not also be rotating at the same time in random ways (number of partial or full rotations, speeds, and directions) around the Z axis?
If so, is the Z axis rotation irrelevant, or is there special mathematics involved in filtering out the affects of the Z rotation on the measurement of X axis rotation? Or does another measurement such as acceleration or magnetism need to be used to solve the problem?
Is there any impact in using a 2-axis vs. a 3-axis gyroscopic sensor for this measurement scenario?
