In addition to device development we provide consultancy to companies that would like to integrate haptics into their solutions.

Product and Services

Sensovo aims to commercialise the first Tactile Satellite Navigation System (TNS).

The product is a navigation system that consists of a mobile phone application to set target destinations and a wearable accessory with integrated vibration motors that can lead the user via vibration to those selected points.

The advantage over other navigation systems is no audio-visual distraction for the user by using the navigation device.

Several target groups can benefit from such a device such as blind people, Alzheimer patients, motorbikers, cyclists, geocachers, tourists, jogger and hikers. The device might be also useful for emergency services and rescue operations.

ESA Business Incubation

Sensovo 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.
