Learn our history

Widefind was founded by a team of researchers and engineers, all of us from Luleå University of Technology (LTU). Our work at LTU focused on positioning solutions for autonomous systems, and we developed considerable competence in that field. The technical solutions that we created facilitated successful projects and gained a lot of attention, but we wanted to apply our expertise outside of the laboratories of LTU. So, we founded Widefind in late 2016.

Since then, we have been exploring different applications of our expertise and technology. Among other things, we have enabled autonomous inspection of wind turbines in the Horizon2020 AEROWORKS project. In the end, we have recognized that the greatest need for what we do exists within industrial applications.

Over the past year, we have developed a solution for one of many complex industrial environments, namely the underground mining industry. In this niche segment of the market, with special prerequisites and needs, we have begun making a name for ourselves. While we continue to develop our solutions for underground mines, we also actively seek to broaden the scope of our business. Thus, we are always on the lookout for new opportunities to seize, new challenges to take on, and new customers to serve.
