Available Global Navigation Satellite Systems, e.g. GPS, do not work well in urban environments and face difficulties when objects in building needs to be located. In addition, the accuracy of GNSS may not be suitable for some applications. 

Position and location information within buildings are important for various applications. With geographical information navigation is possible to guide objects or people from one point to another.

A localization system reliably detects materials, product and mobile equipment in different environments. CoSA helps industry with focus to

  • Design and development of localization systems
  • Performance measurement and optimization of existing localization systems
  • Modelling and simulation of channel parameters and design and development of adaptive filters to track objects
  • Autonomous localisation and navigation
