About

WiFive

WiFive Co., Ltd. is a venture company founded in 2012. We received a transfer of patents on indoor positioning technology using smart phones from the Chungnam National University Industry & Academy Collaboration Team, one of the highly recognized institutions in the Daejeon area to fully focus on the product and market development.

Wireless positioning experts are working hard to develop indoor positioning and high precision positioning systems for vehicles. In particular, we are actively researching indoor high-precision positioning technology using smart phones, IR-UWB-based high-precision positioning technology, and GPS-based wireless positioning technology.

CEO Greeting
