Effective indoor navigation is a challenge for mobile robotics and autonomous vehicles. GPS does not work indoors, so a variety of positioning systems are used and often combined for navigation. These systems often rely on infrastructure such as such as rails, radio beacons or magnet grids in the floor. This infrastructure makes navigation solutions expensive and inflexible.
Accerion has developed a breakthrough, patent-pending, optical positioning and navigation technology which can be integrated into automated vehicles and mobile robots. Our module uniquely enables automated vehicles to navigate both inside and outside, including in dirty environments and at high speeds, without requiring infrastructure outside the vehicle or robot. We provide a positioning and navigation module as a single system that can be integrated in existing or new equipment.
