NaviFloor is an underlay for localizing and identifying objects. By means of this underlay, the floor is equipped with invisible landmarks consisting of RFID-tags. Robot vehicles – or any other mobile objects – are equipped with an RFID reader and an embedded map of the RFIDs’ positions within the floor. Whenever the RFID reader moves into the radio range of an RFID-tag, the robot can determine its position with high accuracy.
The NaviFloor RFID underlay is delivered in rolls of 100cm width and 50m length with a standard grid of 50cm. Delivery also includes a mapping of the embedded RFID tags, simplifying the installation. The NaviFloor RFID impact sound insulating underlay is suitable for installation beneath all types of elastic flooring, laminate or parquet. The NaviFloor RFID reinforcement fabric (patent pending) is specially developed for installation beneath artificial resin or terrazzo flooring (> www.barit.de), tiles or elastic flooring. It is pressure-resistant up to 45N/mm² and withstands even fork lift trucks.
