Enertia Microsystem is a commercializing the ultra high accuracy Micro Electromechancial Systems (MEMS) inertial sensor technology developed at the Center of Wireless Integrated MicroSensing and Systems at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Enertia's patent-pending Micro-BirdbathTM gyrocope, fabricated using the properiety fused silica microfabrication technology, has accuracy and bandwidth performance comparable with fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG) and ring laser gyrosopce (RLG) at 100x smaller size and lower cost (bias instability = 0.01 deg/hr. bandwidth > 500 Hz). This makes Micro-BirdbathTM gyrocope an excellent choice for applications that require very high accuracy with small size, power, and cost. Applications for Micro-BirdbathTM gyroscope include the dead reckoning for autonomous vehicles, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV), Auto Guided Vehicles (AGV), Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV), micro/nano satellites, and pedestrians; precision attitude measurement; platform stabilization; and wearable electronics for high-precision body motion and biological signal sensing.
Enertia's co-founders have four decades of combined experience in MEMS design, microfabrication process development, micro-packaing, and low-noise mixed-signal ASIC design.
