3DWiFi was created by Position Imaging (PI). PI was formed in 2006 to explore the potential of using radio frequency as a tracking medium to replace the cameras used today in image guided surgery. After several years of research and development, PI successfully created the first system that demonstrated this new tracking potential. During this development, the company made several discoveries that showed the potential of a system that could utilize standard WiFi hardware for this new tracking functionality. Several years and design iterations later, 3DWiFi and a new way to engage with the digital world were born.
3DWiFi is a patented technology that takes a unique approach in tracking wireless peripherals and mobile devices with extremely high accuracy in three dimensional space. The technology leverages the current wireless hardware used by devices today. 3DWiFi’s key functional advantages over current tracking solutions are independence of line of sight and lighting conditions, no perceived latency, ability to work in large areas, and low cost.
