a diploma thesis at the Munich Technical University in 1977, the
licensor has discovered a fundamental error on the signage: the
absence of indication of cardinal points, consequently the
unnatural requirement of transfers within the left brain hemisphere.
Based on unnumberable surveys and interviews in two continents, the
licensor has developed a range of orientation methodes for car drivers,
pedestrians, passengers, visitors of exhibitions, shopping centers,
buildings, parks etc. These methodes require merely the knowledge of one
or more master directions and the natural position indication on target
locations and on intermediary points as crossings, bus stops, etc. As the system uses the imagination power
of the user, it requires considerably less signage and simplifies the
The developed system is a comprehensive collection of intellectual works composed by symbols, pictograms, identification numbers and letters, brand names, learning concepts, markings, signage, labelling, descriptions, methodes, electronic/non-electronic displays, algorithms etc., which are specified in attachment according the special requirements of the licensee.
system is a collection of intellectual works that allow several
commercially usable applications, also in electronics, such as:
Honestly®, stepless tariff system with special measures against clandestinity and
display of natural position indications
navigation devices, mobile phones, watches etc.
- NorthSound©, OrientSound© acoustic pointers in shopping centers, busses, road entrances etc. for persons with / without visual handicaps
driven light as north pointer for signage on roads and highways

The technical parts of the system, the designs and the utility models have been registred at the Deutsches Patentamt under the codes 296 09 878.7, 196 43139.5-35, 197 16097.2, 299 04 418.1, 498 12 675.7, 499 07103.4, 202 06 031.4 and 203 17 279.5. Due to the wide range of the agreement subject, the system also has copyright protections similar to franchising agreements. The brand name of the whole system is Munich Orientation Convention. The internet domains

and in use for the present purpose. Articles on newspapers and TV as
well as a comprehensive correspondence attest the popularity of the
invention by authorities in Brazil, Germany and other countries.
Due to his knowledge about the orientation relevant processes in both brain hemispheres, his discovery and further line of investigations of weak points on actual signage, his development of patentable alternative solutions based on revolutionary ideas, his skill and his experience, the licensor has acquired a fame to be an expert on the human orientation field.
