Localization Systems

In order to get a mobile robot functioning autonomously, you need localization systems specifically designed for your purposes. Whether you need the mobile robot to function indoors, outdoors or both.

Avular has developed localization systems for all kinds of mobile robotic applications designed to operate on land, on water or in air. For every use-case, we have a navigation solution for you. There are three Avular localization systems available: Stellar, Avular’s most accurate system which works with Infrared light, Spectrum, Avular’s Ultra-Wide Band system, and Starling, the Real Time Kinematic GPS system by Avular. Each is developed for specific applications.

- For indoor applications with plenty line of sight
- For extremely accurate measurements of position and rotation
- For applications that require high robot speed

- For outdoor applications that require accurate positioning
- For applications with minimum amount of beacons

- For indoor applications with limited line of sight
- For robots that are used both indoors and outdoors
- For applications that require mobile beacons
- For any application where Stellar and Starling are not an option

Starling (IR)

The Avular Starling system is developed completely in-house. From its concept to design, from assembly to testing. Its biggest advantage is the unmatched high accuracy of its measurements. When compared to ground truth, it’s shown that Starling is accurate up to 1 to 1,5 centimeters.

Stellar (RTK/GPS)

The Avular Stellar system works with real-time kinematic GPS (GNSS). It uses – like any GPS system – the satellites to know its location, but also uses GPS information sent from a base station with a known location. This makes the Avular Stellar accurate up to 2.5 centimeters and perfect for applications outdoor.

Spectrum (UWB)

The Avular Spectrum system uses ultra-wideband technology and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Its beacons function as satellites, communicating with the mobile robot. By measuring the travel time of the signals, the robot can calculate its distance from the beacons and therefore its position. It is accurate up to 20 centimetres without needing line of sight.
