Our story begins with the nationally recognized research conducted by of our founder, Dr. Alper Yilmaz. Alper is a professor of Geo-Informatics with appointments in Civil Engineering and Computer Science Departments and honorary appointment to the College of Medicine.
Ever since Alper defended his PhD dissertation, titled “Object Tracking and Activity Recognition in Video Acquired Using Mobile Cameras”, in 2004, he has been considered an expert in determining position, movement and interaction of objects in 3-dimensional space.
The Department of Defense, National Geospatial Agency, NASA, and indutry partners have provided over $11 million in funding to Dr. Yilmaz over the last decade. Most of this research has involved accurately determining how objects moved and interacted with each other without the use of GPS or other RF location technologies.
The work for NASA was particularly exciting. Dr. Yilmaz and his colleagues were tasked with providing future astronauts with the means to accurately navigate the moon or mars where there is no GPS to guide them. Dr. Yilmaz invented a solution which used artificially intelligent tracking tags and visual based navigation to successfully address NASA’s research challenge.
Dr. Yilmaz was granted a patent for his NASA innovation. Determined this space-based invention had commercial value here on Earth, Alper founded Ubihere. The company officially launched in 2018 when Ohio State exclusively licensed the patent to the company.
Since its founding, Ubihere has attracted a team of highly experienced entrepreneurs, engineering, and experts committed to developing solutions around Alper’s research. The company is supported by dedicated partners such as Rev1 Ventures and the state of Ohio.
To date, Ubihere has attracted over $750,000 of venture capital funding and commercialization grants. The company has been awarded at least four Air Force research and development contracts exceeded $1,250,000 in value. The company has successfully completed multiple customer-centric pilots for both Ubitrax and Ubivision.
We are excited to be on the verge of commercial launch of both product lines in 2021/2022. Join us!
