Accuware Visual Positioning System

Mobile devices get their location from physical images

Accuware Visual Positioning System (VPS) enables mobile devices to determine their location in a venue in real time, in 3 dimensions, by processing images (referred to as Markers) captured by their video cameras. A wide range of devices are supported, including smartphones and tablets, as well as autonomous mobile robots (AMR), drones and human-driven vehicles.
Average location accuracy is about 4 inches / 10 centimeters.
