KinetIQ 300 Update: Scaling installation and network discovery

By Sean Lorenz on March 4, 2019

Humatics first introduced its KinetIQ product line at IMTS in Chicago back in September 2018. Since this past fall, our engineers and manufacturing teams have been working hard to scale up delivery for the first industrial-grade, ultra-precise 3D microlocation system to customers in port, manufacturing and logistics industries later this year.

Microlocation: The Next Era of Navigation Technology

By DAVID MINDELL on February 8, 2019
Humatics is pioneering the new technology of microlocation — ultra-precise localization in the built environment. We are currently solving a number of “hair on fire” problems in industry and robotics: the leading edge of microlocation as the inevitable next step in the centuries-long evolution of navigation. These technologies not only tell us where we are in space, but they shape how we imagine and act in the worlds we inhabit.

Microlocation: An Ultra-precise GPS Alternative For The Built Environment

By DAVID MINDELL on January 28, 2019

As an electrical engineer and professor of aerospace engineering, I have intimate knowledge of the core technologies that go into GPS: signaling, RF propagation, and spread-spectrum coding among them. Yet I still see GPS as a miracle — that something as complex as it is, with so many interacting parts, works as reliably and precisely as it does. It enables us to navigate nearly all over the earth, at high update rates, with ten-meter precision, thanks to the enormous sponsorship of the US Department of Defense.

Apollo 8 Blazed the Future of Navigation

By DAVID MINDELL on January 4, 2019

The end of 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 — the stunning mission to send astronauts around the moon in preparation for the lunar landing seven months later. An excellent documentary on PBS’s NOVA, (based in part on my book Digital Apollo) captured the risky nature of the mission, NASA's bold decision to leap several steps ahead in the space race (winning it), and the importance of the digital computer as a partner to the crew.

Precision Navigation Improves Performance in the New York City Subways.

By DAVID MINDELL on April 27, 2018

Nothing illustrates the benefits of precision navigation better than the New York City subway system — colloquially known as the MTA. More than a century old, the subway system is on the verge of collapse under multiple burdens, including mismanagement, increased ridership and underinvestment in infrastructure. At more than a billion dollars per mile, building new track is mostly out of reach.  The MTA has estimated that replacing its signaling system could take fifty to a hundred years!
