Dacuda stands for an always-at-hand and easy to use scanning process that closes the gap between digital and printed information. Dacuda’s objective is to establish the SLAM Scan® technology as standard for computer mice.
The Scanner Mouse is but one of a number of platforms that might employ this technology. It can revolutionize also other devices such as mobile phones, web cams and digital cameras.
The patented SLAM Scan® technology combines robotics principles for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) with Computer Vision. It enables a fast and intuitive document scanning process. Dacuda develops innovative and flexible solutions for the enterprise context and licenses its technology to leading hardware and software vendors.
