In French “Stylo” is pen, and in Latin “Aero” meaning air. Together they create Stylaero, a pen in the air. Referencing an early demo where the user had full 3D control of a computer with a pen.


Stylaero provides customized systems for indoor positioning.

Magnetic Tracking uses magnetic sensor data to capture the effects of a magnet to the surrounding magnetic field. Adding sensors to a network allows us to capture movements in all directions including the indication of jaw and pitch. Our technology delivers robust and stable data being the only technology on the market that passively and reliably tracks absolute position within five degrees of freedom.

Magnetic Signature Identification exploits the fact that every metal structure has a different magnetic signature in relation to the surrounding magnetic field. Stylaero uses cluster analysis algorithms to fusion magnetic sensor data in order to model the geometric structures of items for quality control purposes, point of operation guarding or maintenance planning/monitoring.

Stylaero IPS – Indoor positioning system
By combining our positioning algorithm with third party hardware and sensors it is possible for us to address any room scale positioning problem. With lengths up to 3 meters we claim an accuracy of less than 2 cm depending on the environment. 

– Welcom in challenging us with your specific positioning problem!-



In 2011, research at Linköping University lead to discover of multi-dimension tracking of small magnets. This allowed for many new applications in the human-computer interaction field. The research group consisted of Dr. Fredrik Gustafsson, Dr. Niklas Wahlström and Dr. Gustaf Hendeby whom at the time worked in the department of automatic control.

In 2016, the researchers teamed up with business developer Oscar Spaak and founded the company Stylaero AB early 2017.

Stylaero values confidence, collaboration and creativity.


Fredrik Gustafsson


Dr. Gustafsson’s research interests are in stochastic signal processing, adaptive filtering and change detection, with applications to communication, vehicular, airborne, audio and wildlife applications.

Dr Gustafsson is a professor in Sensor Informatics at Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.

Niklas Wahlström


Dr. Wahlström’s research interests lie in sensor fusion, statistical signal processing machine learning together with its applications. His main path of research is magnetic tracking, using magnetometers for tracking and localization.

Dr. Wahlström is a researcher at Department of Information Technology, Division of Systems and Control at Uppsala University

Gustaf Hendeby


The focus of Dr. Hendeby’s research is statistical and model based sensor fusion; in particular with applications in target tracking, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), positioning, and general nonlinear estimation problems.

Dr. Hendeby currently holds an Associate Professor position at the Division of Automatic Control at the Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.

Oscar Spaak


An entreprenur and coach who have established over 40 companies and coached 500 individuals.

With a background in computer engineering MSc. Spaak delivers on both on the technical side as well as the business side.
