About the project
Project PERUN seeks new design and software solutions to compensate for mineral-rich, or ‘non-cooperative,’ soil types.
The project is currently in its second year of operation. During the first year significant progress was made in developing new analytical soil models capable of accurately representing the response of non-cooperative soils in the electromagnetic induction (EMI) regime for arbitrarily shaped transmitter coils.
Developed soil models have been experimentally verified on different soil samples and EMI sensor geometries, both in laboratory and field conditions. Current research work is focused on the analysis of optimal sensing head coil configurations and on devising efficient model-based soil compensation algorithm.
