Inertial Sensing Based on Quantum-Enhanced Levitation Systems

Project description

Ground-breaking inertial sensing navigation for IoT devices

Based on collecting and sending data, the Internet of Things (IoT) will soon become an important part of our everyday life. Interconnected and automated self-driven cars could be realised safely if precision inertial sensing systems could be created. These are devices that use motion and rotation sensors to calculate the position or velocity of moving objects. The EU-funded IQLev project aims to develop a revolutionary sensing system for inertial navigation by combining quantum detection with noise cancellation and isolation through levitation. It will allow ground-breaking inertial sensing in the low frequency range to fit industry needs. The new sensing system will be first employed in satellite missions and seismology.
