LiDAR localization

Your Benefits

  • Modular localization solution: Tailored to the respective application
  • Versatile use: Multiple scanners, can be used for a wide range of vehicle types
  • High resistant to environmental changes
  • Fits your existing system architectures: With or without odometer integration
  • Localization based on natural contours: No reflectors necessary
  • Compatible with standard LiDAR sensors from SICK
  • Creates the foundation for effective vehicle navigation, efficient vehicle control and fleet management


The modular LiDAR-LOC localization solution enables reliable localization based on natural surrounding contours. It supports several scanners at the same time and is also particularly well suited to flat vehicle types. No additional artificial landmarks or external odometry are required for accurate position determination of mobile platforms, automated guided vehicles or service robots thanks to the LiDAR-LOC. The smart localization algorithm guarantees high resistance to changes in the environment.

LiDAR-LOC is available as a pure software solution that runs on AppSpace-certified as well as various third-party controllers. LiDAR-LOC is therefore well suited as a reliable starting point for the development of vehicle navigation.
