Navisens is a location platform that relies on inertial sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes in mobile devices. The Navisens API can be used to create applications that can locate mobile devices even in an indoor building with multiple floors. Navisens provides its proprietary motionDNA technology which makes it suitable for Augmented Reality and IoT devices. Callibration is not required except for Android devices in order to improve functionality.
