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 Streamer is the easiest way to test and use Dragonfly. It is a small device that you can install on board of your vehicle, robot, drone or forklift.
With Dragonfly Streamer you can get the location of your device in just 4 minutes.
Buy it now, test it, and if you are not happy return it in 30 days for a full refund.
Dragonfly Streamer is the best and fastest way to install and test Dragonfly. However, it is not the only option: Dragonfly can leverage the existing hardware on board, including the camera.

Choose the best way to test Dragonfly
Dragonfly is an exceptionally flexible technology for precise positioning.
For all these reasons, our customers consider Dragonfly
to be the solution to their location problems.
Dragonfly gives access to an indoor positioning location library and API that can be implemented to achieve centimeter accuracy, indoors and outdoors.
6-DOF, x,y,z and WSG-84 Location
The output of this 3D positioning system is provided to developers as
- latitude, longitude (WSG-84) + altitude from the floor in meters,
- x, y, z Cartesian coordinates, where x, y and z measure the distance from the origin (0, 0, 0) in meters + orientation (Yaw, pitch, roll), 6-DOF.
SLAM for Robots and Drones: a Visual SLAM for ROS
Dragonfly can be integrated with ROS (Robot Operating System): for this reason, our team provides ROS nodes upon request to have a direct integration on-board.
Testimonials from real customers
Is Dragonfly open source?
No, Dragonfly is a commercial technology that offers API to be integrated into custom applications. However, at Accuware we are open to customize Dragonfly to provide a unique version to address your requirements. Contact us to speak about the business models available.
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 API for custom integration. All the API is extensively documented, and our team is open to discuss custom development on different Operating Systems and in different programming languages, therefore please contact us to analyze your project together.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO USE DRAGONFLY?
How much does Dragonfly cost?
I HAVE A CAMERA ON BOARD OF THE ROBOT/DRONE ALREADY, SHALL I USE THE DRAGONFLY STREAMER?
We understand that your project is unique: for this reason we offer the option to completely customize our technology just for you. We also offer IT consultancy services for work that may be related to the core of our technology (as opposed to integration work for which we recommend contacting an integrator). Please contact us to discuss your specific needs. We will be glad to help you.
