Exploring the secrets of the Great Pyramid of Giza
29 Jan 2013
Within the Great Pyramid of Giza are three main chambers: the King’s Chamber, the Queens Chamber and the Grand Gallery. The King’s Chamber has two shafts (about 20cmx20cm) which connect the chamber to the outside world. The Queens Chamber has two similar shafts, but strangely, these shafts do not directly connect to the outside. Within the shafts there are doors (or stones) blocking the path to the outside. This is where Djedi comes in.
“We needed a precise means to measure the orientation of the shafts, and the sensors had to be lightweight and compact to be carried by the tiny rover. The Xsens MTi AHRS was ideally suited for the job.”
