NAiSE is a specialist in indoor navigation. In the context of a Smart Factory, the technology startup develops a system for determining the position of automated guided vehicles (AGV). The system comprises the areas of tracking, data analysis and navigation. This allows to identify and optimize bottlenecks in intralogistics. With two electrical engineers, Robert Libert and Kai Przybysz, the IT business engineer Jens Heinrich and marketing expert Felicitas Knapp, the diversified team is ready to hit the ground running.  The startup was founded in 2017 and is also funded by the EXIST scholarship of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) and the European Social Fund (ESF)

Product and Services

We offer a complete solution for the localization and navigation of automated guided vehicles (AGV). This solution includes consulting, distribution and installation, configuration and maintenance of the hardware, as well as a software subscription for the detailed display and analysis of the data. These analyses identify bottlenecks by means of statistical evaluations (e. g. in the form of heatmaps and diagrams). At the same time, the data are used in a learning cycle to optimize the routing strategies of the AGV and to realize an autonomous navigation.

ESA Business Incubation

NAiSE GmbH is hosted at ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Darmstadt, run by the German company cesah. This has provided the opportunity to consult ESA experts who have supported with technology insights and ideas to improve the system. In addition, especially the support provided by cesah in relation to general business activities has been very helpful.
