LiDAR localization

Your Benefits

  • Scalable localization solution – suitable for the respective application
  • High positioning accuracy & repeatability
  • Additional sensor signals can be integrated for individual applications
  • No changes to the infrastructure with additional artificial landmarks required
  • Support of safety and standard LiDAR sensors for a wide range of solution concepts
  • Simple integration of new functions thanks to modular structure
  • Reliable localization in environments with high dynamics or few contours


The LiDAR-LOC is a localization solution for all autonomously moving mobile platforms. It uses LiDAR sensor data and links it with information from other sensors as needed. This is how the LiDAR-LOC achieves accurate and reliable localization results based on natural contours – environmental adjustments are not necessary. Integrating the solution into an existing infrastructure and putting it into operation is easy.

The LiDAR-LOC is available as a modular software solution that runs on SICK AppSpace-certified as well as various third-party controllers. This means the LiDAR-LOC is the optimal starting point for the development of vehicle navigation.
