Precise 2D and 3D indoor location, tracking and navigation for forklifts, AGV, AMR, robots, drones using monocular or stereoscopic cameras and computer vision
Dragonfly is an accurate computer vision based positioning system 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 uses computer vision to deliver indoor locations with centimeter accuracy, by analyzing in real time the video stream coming from an on-board camera connected to a small computing unit.
Dragonfly is a competitive alternative to LiDAR and UWB and offers higher ROI. It is used as a precise indoor positioning and navigation system for forklifts inside warehouses, automated guided vehicles (AGV), autonomous mobile robots (AMR), robots, drones and any other moving vehicle, device or asset.

Dragonfly is an accurate indoor location system based on computer vision.
The location is computed in real time using just an on board camera and a computing unit on board of the device to be tracked, thanks to our computer vision algorithm. Computer vision, odometry and artificial intelligence are used to create an accurate system, in order to deliver a precise location for multiple applications. It is an excellent solution for the precise indoor 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 indoor location problems!

Dragonfly gives access to an application programming interface (API) that can be used to manage each Dragonfly instance running on board of the device that needs to be tracked, or on a local server.
Dragonfly is a visual positioning system 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?
Yes, Dragonfly can work inside unknown spaces. So, please feel free to contact us to analyze your project and requirements with one of our specialists.
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 other moving devices. 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 moving devices through space.
How can I integrate Dragonfly?
Dragonfly comes as a JAVA application for Linux and Windows that exposes an application programming interface (API) for custom integrations. The API is extensively documented inside the Dragonfly Support site.
WHAT IS THE ACCURACY OF DRAGONFLY?
Can I use Dragonfly with ROS?
Yes, Dragonfly can be integrated with ROS and our R&D team can create a ROS version of Dragonfly as well. Contact us for more details.
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 Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
I HAVE A CAMERA ON BOARD OF THE ROBOT/DRONE ALREADY, CAN I USE IT?
Dragonfly leverages on wide angles cameras. So, if your mounted device is a fisheye camera, then you can use it.
I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS, CAN I SPEAK WITH A SPECIALIST?
Sure. Our team will be glad to help you. Therefore, click here to contact us and speak with a specialist.
CAN I USE DRAGONFLY TO INCREASE THE SAFETY OF MY WAREHOUSE?
Yes, the positions returned by Dragonfly can be integrated into safety solutions and used, for example, to notify forklifts drivers of dangerous situations like vehicle to vehicle or vehicle to pedestrian collisions. Click here and contact us to know more!
