SLAM Roadshow – Kicked off in style

Nick Stein, 

Indoors SLAM Roadshow – Round One

The SLAM roadshow officially kicked off last week when our CEO and COO spent three busy days at the event, with a special stop at the Startup Alley. During the other days they enjoyed what was a fantastic event,rest taking a look around the venue, listening to talks from international giants and meeting with interesting people from the industry.

As part of our Roadshow, our focus was on giving you an understanding of our SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) technology and how your own personal use case can benefit from using it. And to that avail our CRO was in Portland at the ION GNSS+ event meeting many people in the industry and talking about the innovations, findings and even roadbumps of SLAM.

So guys, let us know what it was like in the epicenter of startups attending a startup event?

Surprisingly normal 🙂 all the startup events and festivals (e.g. pioneers) in Europe are at the same level as the on in SF

What was the biggest surprise for you?

Startups moving towards b2b in the US

What were the greatest learning points?

It’s all about the show. So many people, so catch attention no matter how

Tips for other startups for thinking about going?

Of course, figure out how to get as much attention as possible. If you are given the chance, GO. That includes heading to Tech Crunch Disrupt London (link)

ION GNSS+ the lowdown

Our CRO visited the event but this time we didn’t take a speaking slot but we know it is one of the places to be for navigation solutions and we had many great talks about SLAM and the future of Indoor Navigation.

Thomas, what were the highlights?
Other than me? There were a lot of the movers and shakers in the indoor location business there so exchanging stories and talking about the commercial and scalable viability of SLAM was great

Usually at these events, the next must go to event is being discussed, so let us know where will you be appearing next?
IPIN is the must go to event for Indoor Positioning, not just because I am the one of the keynotes but because this is really THE event for our field.

Finally, maybe not so relevant technically, how was Portland?
Very interesting, we drove up from San Francisco to Portland and it was worth it.

A big thank you

A big thank you to everyone we met or who came by our booth and had a chat with us. We had a great time and hope to work with you in the near future.
