Evolution Robotics introduces a Navigation Solution For Robots and Intelligent Devices called Northstar

The system is a low-cost, hardware and software localization solution that enables mobile devices to navigate more intelligently in indoor environments.

Similar to global positioning systems (GPS), the NorthStar system measures a device's exact coordinates and heading using IR light spots projected onto the ceiling of its environment.

By triangulation, the NorthStar system can instantly determine the device’s exact position and heading with very high accuracy. Unlike GPS however, NorthStar works indoors, is more precise, and provides instantaneous and absolute course information.
Evolution Robotics will have the Northstar system available by the end of the year for order. More details in this Press-Release.
