Next-generation navigation technology developed in Australia

Thursday 16 July 2020
CGA researchers, Associate Professor Jong Chow and his team, in partnership with industry will develop, design and manufacture the next-generation of optical gyroscopes for high-precision autonomous navigation in a new $8.7 million project.
 
Australian researchers and industry partners are joining forces to develop, design and manufacture the next-generation of optical gyroscopes for high-precision autonomous navigation in a new $8.7 million project.
 
The rapid and transformative development of autonomous vehicles in recent years has seen numerous technological breakthroughs.  The deployment of ultra high-performance gyroscopes can enhance their performance in terms of safety and guidance.
 
The use of ultra high-performance gyroscopes can already be found in a wide range of industries including infrastructure management, mining, space sciences, agriculture, and defence.  The new project is led by navigation systems manufacturer Advanced Navigation, with research partners The Australian National University (ANU), RMIT University, and commercial partner Corridor Insights. It will develop a new standard for optical gyroscopes, improving precision while reducing cost and size.
