A PhD graduate from the Telecommunications and Information Processing department of the University of Ghent, Samuel Van de Velde has focused on filling a gaping hole in the commercial GPS market: indoor positioning.

In 2014, Van de Velde created his own indoor positioning system and the following year he founded Pozyx Labs, a company specializing in accurate indoor positioning. Since then, Van de Velde’s lab has created and sold over 5,000 units in more than 45 different countries. Today, Pozyx continues to work on developing new and specialized products for the GPS market.
