CTO, NavVis GmBh (DE)

Based on the experience in positioning systems, gained during his stay at the Stanford GPS lab, Georg began with first considerations of a vision based indoor positioning system. The Institute for Media Technology (LMT) at Technische Universität München allowed for the concrete exploration of this idea as part of his PhD project and provided initial funding. 2011 the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology provided a grant to extent the research team and to continue research in this promising direction. Inspired by his studies in the field of Technology Management (CDTM), Georg worked from the very beginning towards starting a company in this area.
