University of Michigan gyroscope could reduce dependence on GPS in electronics

3. 4. 2020 | ClickOnDetroit | www.clickondetroit.com

Researchers powered the University of Michigan have developed a small but powerful gyroscope that could reduce the GPS-dependency of drones and autonomous cars.

According to U-M’s Schlumberger Professor of Engineering, Khalil Najafi, the gyroscope -- a device used to measure and maintain navigation found in smartphones and other technologies -- is 10,000 times more accurate than a typical smartphone gyroscope but at only 10 times the cost.

Miniature gyroscope

New micro-gyroscope has a symmetrical glass resonator and a special shape, which increases its accuracy. The tiny device uses electrodes as well as a metal coating to contain vibration patterns that move the gyroscope. It’s small size also means that it can easily fit in navigational systems within drones, cars and underwater vehicles.
