About us

LocosLab GmbH is an information technology service provider. Established in 2012 as a spin-off of the University of Duisburg-Essen, we usually develop tailor-made solutions for our customers based on our existing hardware and software products. The employees of LocosLab GmbH cover a broad range of expertise from embedded and mobile to web development. This allows us to master even unusual and difficult tasks.

Always one step ahead

The employees of LocosLab GmbH share years of research experience at the University of Duisburg-Essen and the University of Bonn. This forms an excellent basis for the continuous improvement of the hard- and software products of LocosLab GmbH, especially, when combined with the ongoing strategic cooperation with the research group Networked Embedded Systems at University of Duisburg-Essen.

In addition, our close cooperation with academic parters enables the evaluation of research results under realistic conditions, for example, as part of joint research projects or application development projects. Examples include:

  • The practical evaluation of algorithms to automatically re-calibrate positioning systems
    (Ngewi Fet, Marcus Handte, Pedro José Marrón, Autonomous Adaptation of Indoor Localization Systems in Smart Environments, Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments, 9 (1), pp. 7–20, 2017.)
  • The development of integrated systems to enable a seamless navigation in indoor and outdoor environments
    (Stephan Wagner, Ngewi Fet, Marcus Handte, Pedro José Marrón, An Approach for Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Navigation, 13th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’17), Seoul, Korea, 2017.)
  • The realization of innovative navigation systems for public transportation
    (Marcus Handte, Stefan Foell, Stephan Wagner, Gerd Kortuem, Pedro José Marrón, An Internet-of-Things Enabled Connected Navigation System for Urban Bus Riders, IEEE Internet of Things Journal, 2016.)
