Navisens™ is a software-only solution designed to locate mobile devices in all environments: indoors within multi-level buildings, underground, and outdoors. Our patent-pending motionDNA™ technology processes data from inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) found inside mobile devices to provide a 3D navigation solution with zero infrastructure.
No WiFi. No GPS. No Bluetooth beacons. No environment fingerprinting or calibration.
motionDNA™ protects user privacy and anonymity by operating on the device itself without requiring access to a server-side API or WiFi/cellular connection. In fact, motionDNA™ works in airplane mode.

We spend 90% of our time indoors. Your app shouldn't be stuck outdoors. Our location platform leverages our motionDNA™ technology to fuse information from all available positioning technologies to provide a mobile positioning system that seamlessly continues tracking regardless of the environment and without environment calibration or fingerprinting.
Now that it’s easy to find your way in the real world with just a smartphone in hand, the next logical navigation frontier is indoors, where GPS doesn’t work and maps are often nonexistent. Australian startup Navisens says it has a plan to track everyone from firefighters searching through burning buildings to consumers wandering through shopping malls, without requiring any special wireless signals.Rachel Metz, MIT Technology Review
Using an approach known as "inertial navigation", modified from military and industrial applications and Dr Donikian's own work with firefighters and first responders, Navisens' algorithms process raw data gleaned from low-cost motion sensors on smartphones.Laura Locke, Technology reporter, San Francisco
When you’re outside on a clear day, GPS devices work like a charm, pinpointing your location to within a few metres. But step indoors (or, worse, underground), and the world’s most popular tracking system becomes almost useless. That’s where Sydney’s Navisens moves in.Andrew Braithwaite, Steve Brearton, Omar El Akkad, Iain Marlow and Nancy Won
Australian indoor navigation firm Navisens recently won the "Best Technology" award at the Launch Festival 2013 in the US for discovering how to do indoor and underground mapping without any infrastructure, including wi-fi networks.Technology Editor, Asher Moses
"Navisens did a great tech demo at Launch Conference . Ashod is building a strong company to capitalize on indoor location."Don Dodge, Launch 2013
