Humatics is pioneering microlocation technology, offering centimeter and millimeter scale positioning that is faster, more precise, and affordable than any existing 3D positioning or location tracking technology on the market. Their Spatial Intelligence Platform™ is revolutionizing how people and machines locate, navigate and collaborate in the connected world.
Humatics essentially functions like an "indoor GPS" system for autonomous mobile robots, enabling the AMRs to accurately locate themselves within your facility. This data can be used by the AMR to reinforce localization content and enable precise operations such as conveyor infeed and outfeed interactions as well as machine tool tending operations.
The Humatics Spatial Intelligence Platform comprises the KinetIQ 100 and 300 product lines which offer unprecedented precision down to 2 centimeters for 1- to 3D industrial application requirements, while the KinetIQ 1000 will change the game with millimeter-scale object tracking from a distance. KinetIQ OS brings it all together with a smart, intuitive browser-based software tool.
Precise object localization and tracking is challenging in industrial environments. Today’s radio-based local area positioning technologies (GPS, RTLS, RFID) have limited precision, with uncertainties ranging from many centimeters to several meters. Camera-based systems are expensive and sensitive to lighting conditions. Humatics’ breakthrough system captures cm-scale position and motion data at low cost, indoors and out, creating an entirely new product category – microlocation. The KinetIQ 300, Humatics’ cm-scale hardware and software solution, opens new possibilities for industrial microlocation applications.
The KinetIQ 300 system precisely localizes and tracks moving objects in 3D with an industry-leading 2 cm of precision at ranges up to 500 m.
