This problem has me stumped. I'm toying with a stabilization platform design which has 3 gyroscopes supplying angular velocity -- one for each axis (x,y,z). The model has units vectors (x,y,z) representing the platform's orientation in space. The question is how do I apply the 3 orthogonal angular velocities to these vectors. I tried applying euler angles one at a time and just going with that. However, euler angles are sensitive to the order in which they are applied and it didn't take long for errors to accumulate.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What's the trick to applying 3 concurrent angular velocities to a vector? Is there a transform which takes the 3 angles and produces a rotation matrix or quaternion?
