The Future of Positioning

Ultra Low Power Instant Cold Boot GNSS Positioning
for humans and intelligent machines

What we do

Kolmostar is a positioning technology company that is reinventing the industry’s GNSS (GPS, Beidou, etc) positioning approach to achieve ultra-low-power (mW-level) and instant cold boot positioning in harsh metropolitan environment for Internet-of-Things devices and autonomous vehicles. Kolmostar’s solutions integrate advanced silicon technology, cutting-edge high-dimension statistical signal processing, as well as high-performance cloud computing to reduce GNSS sensors’ positioning errors and power consumption, making ultra low power position services universally accessible for billions of humans and intelligent machines.

Who we are

We are a team of expertise in physics, math, statistics, information theory, signal processing, embedded systems, big data infrastructure, machine learning and integrated circuits. We have R&D centers in Beijing, China and Fremont, CA, US.

Low Power Positioning

Data is today’s new oil. GNSS sensors are embedded in billions of mobile devices, generating hundreds of terabytes of position data every day, which power various LBS applications.
Battery life has always been the biggest concern in all mobile device. An ultra-low-power GNSS sensor that can be turned on 24/7 will generate positioning data even in devices with extremely limited battery size. This not only brings LBS to the next level but also creates an untouched opportunity for AI-powered applications to better understand every moving thing in our world.
