Sonitor is actively seeking new applications for the Sonitor® IPS, a real time location system (RTLS) based on USID (ultrasound identification). Sonitor believes that contribution to external research projects is a way to increase the company’s own innovation and to create new market opportunities.
With reliable location information you can
- Pinpoint the real time location of any tracked object or person with room-level or inch accuracy.
- Analyze process-flows, encounters and happenings as they occur in real time, or use the automatically harvested historical location and movement data.
Sonitor has participated in several large projects together with universities, research institutes and others.
Co-operation support in hospitals through transparency (COSTT)
In a project named COSTT innovative uses of Sonitor’s RTLS will help developing better healthcare services in complex multi-actor environments. Some of the best research groups and hospitals in Norway are involved in the project:
The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway.
Microsystems technology for improved tags and receivers
Sonitor is working with SINTEF (Norway), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland) and other partners to develop new piezo-electric MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems) technology that will make the next generation of tags and receivers smaller, better and cheaper. The work started in 2004 with a European FP6 project called MEMS-pie and has been continued with a project funded by the Nordic Innovation Centre, NORD-pie.
Currently the technology is being industrialised through the EU framework 6 project Piezo-Volume.
New piezo-MEMS microphone arrays
for increased receiver directivity.
Credible implementation of results
Participation of Sonitor in your project will ensure that the project’s results will be implemented and industrialized by an active and skilled partner. Our staff has long experience with collaborative research and participation in large projects.
Norwegian SME company
Sonitor Technologies AS is an independent company based in Oslo, Norway and qualifies as a small and medium size enterprise (SME) according to the definition of the European Commission for participation in RTD projects, for example FP7.
