Next Generation Navigation Space

Time: 21 May 2024, 13 – 15 
Place: Urban 3 / Maria01, Lapinlahdenkatu 16, Helsinki  
Registration: Register for the event here

The potential of a new generation of indoor and sensor positioning is now here. Precise positioning to the nearest centimetre based on sensor technologies opens up many possibilities for businesses: from robotics to logistics and warehouse management, as well as indoor positioning solutions for spaces where people want to find exactly the right location, like shopping centres. 

Take advantage of the new test environment 

On 21 May, we are hosting an event to explore these opportunities. At the same time, we are launching a new indoor positioning test environment that your company can use to test and develop different positioning solutions. The test environment is available via the Location Innovation Hub. 

At the event you will hear about research in sensor technologies, be inspired by different use cases and explore the indoor positioning test environment through a demo. The programme is in English.  


13:00 Present and future trends in navigation
