Precise 2D and 3D indoor location, tracking and navigation for forklifts, AGV, AMR, robots, drones using monocular or stereoscopic cameras and SLAM
Dragonfly is an accurate visual positioning system based on Visual SLAM that provides accurate indoor location to forklifts, AGV, AMR, robots, drones and other moving vehicles, in GPS-denied environments, using standard cameras enabling RTLS solutions for analytics, productivity and safety.
Dragonfly’s patented technology uses simultaneous localization and mapping (visual SLAM) to deliver indoor locations with centimeter accuracy, by analyzing in real time the video stream coming from an on-board camera.
Dragonfly is a competitive alternative to LiDAR and UWB and offers an higher ROI. It is used as a precise indoor positioning and navigation system for forklifts inside warehouses, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), autonomous mobile robots (AMR), robots, drones and any other moving device.
Dragonfly is an accurate indoor location system based on Visual SLAM.
The location is computed in real time using just an on board camera on the unit to be tracked, thanks to our proprietary patented SLAM algorithm. Computer vision, odometry and artificial intelligence are used to create an accurate SLAM system, in order to deliver a precise location for multiple applications. It is an excellent solution for the precise tracking of forklifts, AGV, AMR, robots and drones (in the 3D space).
For all these reasons, our customers consider Dragonfly to be the solution to their location problems!

Dragonfly is a visual SLAM for ROS (Robot Operating System) and allows to integrate its accurate location into robots and drones. For this reason, we are open to develop ROS nodes upon request to have a direct integration on-board.
Is Dragonfly open source?
No, Dragonfly is a commercial technology that can be integrated into custom applications.
Can I use Dragonfly to track the precise location through unknown environments?
Can I use Dragonfly to create 3D maps and models?
No. Dragonfly is meant to provide precise indoor location to forklifts, AGV, AMR, drones, robots and any moving device. The 3D map created with Dragonfly is not meant to be human intelligible (nor readable by any other software), because Dragonfly is not designed to deliver end-user 3D maps, but rather to provide the precise location of a moving device through space.
How can I integrate Dragonfly?
Dragonfly comes as a JAVA application for Linux and Windows that exposes an API for custom integration. The API is extensively documented inside the Dragonfly Support site.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO USE DRAGONFLY?
Dragonfly can run or on any computer with at least a quad-core CPU + 16 GB of RAM. It is available for Linux (Ubuntu 18, 20), Windows 10 and WSL.
I HAVE A CAMERA ON BOARD OF THE ROBOT/DRONE ALREADY, CAN I USE IT?
Dragonfly leverage on wide angles cameras. So, if your device mounts a fisheye camera then you can use it.
We understand that every project is unique: for this reason we offer also custom developments.
