Autonomous robots and drones and precise indoor positioning and navigation

We explain what factors affect the proper selection of the height of stationary beacons (anchors) and answer other typical questions about heights

Our customer shared videos of current status of their autonomous indoor drone project and let us share with other users to make everyone's progress easier.

A few words about underwater navigation and positioning based on our system

How to choose an optimal forklift tracking and monitoring system for safety and productivity. Advice are equally applicable to other types of vehicles, carts, and AGVs and even to other types of RTLS and other technologies.

Practical hints for precise ultrasound-based positioning systems in the rain: how to provide ingress protection for the long-term exposure and keep accuracy

Practical hints for precise ultrasound-based positioning systems in the rain: how to provide ingress protection for the long-term exposure and keep accuracy

We explain how to build an indoor and outdoor positioning system for a drone with geo-fencing capability.

We explain how we remotely helped our robotics customer to set up a precise indoor positioning system for show robots.

A potential customer of ours in sports tracking said that they tried BLE, and it is not suitable for their needs. Then, they discussed it with UWB manufacturers, and UWB wasn't suitable as well. That surprised me ... Why not UWB?...

A typical request: what is the recommended configuration, and how many beacons are required for an indoor positioning system for a drone competition?

What is the range?

Just another way to answer the same question about the range of the system we have been asked over and over again 🙂

This is a typical request and a typical floor plan. It can be used as an example for similar cases and as a reference for budgeting.

Calculation of the number of beacons required is equally a technical and economical exercise. It is a simple exercise if you understand the underlying logic.

The range of indoor positioning systems can be from ~30 meters to hundreds of meters and more depending on what exactly is meant and depending on the architecture used. Read more details.

Don't give up if something broke in the system. In many cases, it is completely or partiality fixable with little efforts.

Drones in IA

It is possible to fly autonomous indoor drones using IA but it requires deeper understanding of the technology
