PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

NAVITEC SYSTEMS - GIM ROBOTICS PARTNERSHIP

Finland-based GIM Robotics – 3D environmental modeling, localization, and situational awareness wizards – and Navitec Systems – the world leader in natural feature-based navigation – are partnering to jointly provide turnkey solutions for a plethora of logistical use cases.

FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES

The companies share a long joint history with multiple layers of interactions. All eight founders (4 from Navitec and 4 from GIM) are robotics, electrical engineering, and automation graduates from Helsinki University of Technology (later Aalto University), including two ex-professors and five D.Sc.(Tech.). Otaniemi campus area has acted as the incubator for both companies, because in addition to Aalto University, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd – the largest research and technology company and research centre conducting applied research in Finland – and the employer of three of the founders, is also situated in Otaniemi.

EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING

The amount of mobile robotics experience in this group is ridiculous; on average the members of this 4by4 team have more than 25 years of hands-on experience with field and service robots and modern mobile working machines. As the old saying states: they have all been there and done that. Twice.

THE CALL OF THE OUTDOORS

Having mastered the indoor logistics challenges since the foundation of the companies (Navitec 1998 & GIM 2014), both feel that the time is right to switch the common focus to outdoor environments for both single and multi-machine logistics systems orchestrated by proven Fleet Management System (FMS) from Navitec Systems. With a joint staff number closing 100, Navitec-GIM powerhouse has the needed critical mass for doing great things even in the most challenging outdoor use cases.

COMING OUT WITH A BIG BANG

Companies start their partnership in the leading international logistics trade show, LogiMAT, in Munich, Germany May 31st – June 2nd. Around 1,500 international exhibitors are expected to come to Stuttgart to present their latest product innovations and solutions for intralogistics. You can find Navitec Systems at Hall-7/booth-F66 and GIM Robotics in Hall-2/booth-D39.  

Make sure you visit both stands.
