Pulse Star - Next-generation Positioning System

NaviStar is now Pulse Star!
To reflect the capabilities that we built into NaviStar, we have decided to rename the entire product line.

Purpose built to overcome the limitations of LIDAR-based navigation in super-large indoor and urban areas (i.e. millions of square feet), Pulse Star operates in a completely server-free manner (i.e. no backend servers). We have accomplished this by creating a new positioning technique that IS NOT based on traditional TDoA, TOA, TWR, or AOA techniques. This proprietary technique eliminates the need for handshakes between devices and the use of external servers for computation.

With Pulse Star, robots are freed from their fixed paths and can operate in complex areas with reflective surfaces and in human+robot crowds. This means that Pulse Star equipped robots will be able to operate in non-traditional areas, unlock new robot use cases, and achieve higher productivity than their non Pulse Star equipped counterparts.

Pulse Star currently comes in 2 variants.
Pulse Star U uses ultra-wideband signals to enable centimeter-level position data in 2D and 3D space, at up to 20Hz, with under 1ms latency. Robots using Pulse Star U can travel in indoor environments at speeds of up to 40km/h with reliable and consistent positioning data.
Pulse Star B uses custom Bluetooth-based signals and hardware to provide meter-level positioning data at long ranges (~300-400m). Robots can make use of Pulse Star B to achieve GPS-like accuracy in indoor and urban areas where GPS quality is poor or non-existent.

Pulse Star is now undergoing Proof of Value trials

We are currently looking for partners globally to test bed and trial Pulse Star.
Our objective is to explore impactful use cases and to generate success stories.
