The best in robotics positioning and pose determination

Kaarta™ Traak™ provides 200Hz real-time updates on system pose providing x, y, z, roll, pitch, and yaw. Traak is available in a ready-to-go system configuration and in a license form for your existing platform.



Kaarta's algorithms have been integrated with 3D lidar and IMU to provide 6 DOF State information at 200 Hz with less than 15 msec latency for automating robots. 

Volume pricing discounts support large scale deployment.

Pose estimation without GPS

Traak works beneath tree canopies, inside buildings, or in areas where GPS is obscured. Traak doesn't need GPS for fast, accurate, and low-cost 3D real-time position estimation. Traak also provides pose with respect to a prior map for drift free performance.
