Title: CONVERTING A ROTATIONAL MOTION OF AN INERTIAL SENSOR TO A LINEAR MOTION OF ITS PROOF MASS
Abstract:
System and methods are disclosed herein for converting rotational motion to linear motion. A system comprising a rotational drive can be connected to a proof mass by a first structure comprising a coupling spring. An anchor can be connected to the proof mass by a second structure comprising a drive spring. The coupling spring and the drive spring can be configured to cause the proof mass to move substantially along a first axis when the rotational drive rotates about a second axis.
