My Device: Z10, Playbook

BB10, simulator controller, rotation bug?


I was using the BB10 simulator  and had the controller active so that I could change sensor inputs.


When rotating the device about an axis, the simulated rate of change is huge (as detected by the simulated gyro sensor), exceeding a couple hundred rad/s no matter how slowly I try to move the control.



Even using the 'wheel' to 'rotate' the device and moving extremely slowly, the simulated gyro sensor reports large rates of change and this can't be correct.

If you rotate the controller 'wheel' and take 5 seconds to do a full revolution, the rate of change should be 1.25 rad/s


I suspect there is a bug in the controller.
