The company’s very first patent was filed in 2004, a technical solution with a vision to improve communications in developing countries with desolate environments . At the time, TerraNet initiated partnerships with both network operators and mobile manufacturers, including Huawei, Sony and India’s Tata DoCoMo in order to test and develop the most optimal commercial applications for our technology. Today, the company’s vision is to enable an uninterrupted user experience for everyone regardless of internet connectivity.

Several years of research and development resulted in the launch of new Wi-Fi standards such as 802.11S and Wi-Fi AwareTM, which TerraNet’s software platform is built around. The Wi-Fi AwareTM standard was first launched by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2015 and adopted by Google in the 2017 Android O MR1 release.   The standardization accelerated the growing interest for the company and our technology.

Terranet provides a critical modular embedded software SDK for offline connectivity based positioning and streaming of data completely independent of mobile networks or other hotspot-dependent networks. Terranet’s patented software algorithms enable positioning in and Vehicle-To-Vehicle navigation systems. Inside automotive connectivity, our domain expertise lies primarily in non-GNSS dependent collaborative maneuvering/positioning (cellular and DSRC). Collision warning in intersections and platooning are primary use cases.
