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. 

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.

The project has been supported through a $2.8 million Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-P) grant to Advanced Navigation, announced on Tuesday 14 July.
