Navisens™ is a software only location platform that operates indoors and outdoors without relying on infrastructure such as WiFi Access Points (APs), Bluetooth Beacons, or GPS. Our patent-pending motionDNA™ technology processes data from inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) found inside mobile devices to provide a 3D navigation solution with zero infrastructure.
No WiFi. No GPS. No Bluetooth beacons. No environment fingerprinting or calibration.
Navisens™ dramatically reduces the time and cost of deploying location indoors by eliminating both the need for fingerprinting the environment and the installation of infrastructure (that comes with WiFi APs / Bluetooth beacons). This also removes the need for constant maintenance and removes barriers to scale.
The low-latency high resolution location and orientation provided by motionDNA™ makes it particularly suitable for Augmented Reality (AR), IoT, and engaging with the user within apps.
Apply for SDK
motionDNA™ is available as a native SDK for iOS and Android, and as a web api which processes sensor data entirely within the browser: no app required!
Now that it’s easy to find your way in the real world with just a smartphone in hand, the next logical navigation frontier is indoors, where GPS doesn’t work and maps are often nonexistent. Australian startup Navisens says it has a plan to track everyone from firefighters searching through burning buildings to consumers wandering through shopping malls, without requiring any special wireless signals.Rachel Metz, MIT Technology Review
Using an approach known as "inertial navigation", modified from military and industrial applications and Dr Donikian's own work with firefighters and first responders, Navisens' algorithms process raw data gleaned from low-cost motion sensors on smartphones.Laura Locke, Technology reporter, San Francisco
When you’re outside on a clear day, GPS devices work like a charm, pinpointing your location to within a few metres. But step indoors (or, worse, underground), and the world’s most popular tracking system becomes almost useless. That’s where Sydney’s Navisens moves in.Andrew Braithwaite, Steve Brearton, Omar El Akkad, Iain Marlow and Nancy Won
Australian indoor navigation firm Navisens recently won the "Best Technology" award at the Launch Festival 2013 in the US for discovering how to do indoor and underground mapping without any infrastructure, including wi-fi networks.Technology Editor, Asher Moses
"Navisens did a great tech demo at Launch Conference . Ashod is building a strong company to capitalize on indoor location."Don Dodge, Launch 2013
Navisens™ is a venture-backed startup headquartered in San Francisco. We design cutting-edge location and motion estimation technology for mobile and wearable devices. Our technology is used in Augmented Reality (AR) applications on the latest Head Mounted Devices (HMDs) and on diverse applications on smartphones.
Recent news coverage: Techcrunch
Our motionDNA™ technology uses inertial sensors and does not rely on any infrastructure in the environment and works indoors, outdoors, and underground. Our goal is to be the location platform for all mobile devices in all environments.
We are looking for candidates who are extremely motivated and exceptional in their ability and dedication. We offer them a chance to be part of a tech startup which is changing the nature of location based services and is defining core technology for fields such as Augmented Reality (AR).
Perks: Great location in SF, awesome rooftop for coffee & lunch, snacks, equipment budget, healthcare, building actual technology, lots of gadgets (smartglasses, wearables), internationally diverse team (Australia, France, USA, India, Taiwan and Spain), good beer on Fridays.
