Precise 3D location for robots, drones, AGV and forklifts
using standard cameras and SLAM
Dragonfly Visual Positioning System is a Visual SLAM that provides accurate indoor location to robots, drones, AGV, forklifts and other vehicles, in GPS-denied environments, using a standard camera.
Dragonfly’s patented technology uses simultaneous localization and mapping (visual SLAM) technology to deliver indoor and outdoor location with centimeter accuracy, by analyzing in real time the video stream coming from an on-board camera.
Therefore, Dragonfly is a cheap alternative to LiDAR and UWB, and offers an high ROI. As a result, it can be used for precise indoor positioning and navigation of robots, automated guided vehicles, AGVs and drones, or to perform forklifts tracking inside warehouses.

Dragonfly’s accurate indoor location system is a visual 3D positioning/location system based on Visual SLAM.
The Location is computed in real time using just an on board camera, thanks to our proprietary patented SLAM algorithms. 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 SLAM for Drones and Robots and a precise tracking system for AGV and Forklifts. In particular, Dragonfly enables SLAM Navigation in 3D.
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 offers API to 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?
Dragonfly is meant to provide precise indoor location to vehicles, drones, robots… It creates a 3D map, however it is not meant to be human intelligible, 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 Mac OS that exposes an API for custom integration. The API is extensively documented.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO USE DRAGONFLY?
Dragonfly can run or on a local machine/computer. It is compatible with Linux and MacOS systems, and requires at least a quad-core CPU + 16 GB of RAM. Read more about the equirements of the computing unit.
I HAVE A CAMERA ON BOARD OF THE ROBOT/DRONE ALREADY, CAN I USE IT?
We understand that every project is unique: for this reason we offer also custom developments and RTL.
