The Future of Navigation

Skyya was engaged in August 2018 to launch WaveSense, the first company in the world to offer self-driving vehicle navigation based on ground penetrating radar at commercial scale. Its mission is to enable self-driving vehicles to navigate any road safely, precisely and reliably in all weather conditions. WaveSense is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the MIT-owned patents relating to localizing ground penetrating radar. Testing and development to date, including that which occurred in Afghanistan, was done by MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
