History

Sevensense was founded in 2018 as a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich. Our technology is based on 15+ years of research and the vast, hands-on experience at the Autonomous Systems Lab paved our way towards reliable localization, path planning and operation of mobile robots.

In 2018, Sevensense became a Wyss Zurich project, with the goal of translating those technological advancements into an industry-grade product ready to be deployed on any mobile robot. Since then, our team is in continuous expansion and motivated to revolutionize the mobile robotics industry.
