Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is the integration of digital information with the user environment in real time.

Unity 3D

Enterprise AR Application

Unlike Virtual Reality which creates a totally artificial environment, Augmented Reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information/media on the top of it. AR technology is useful in many industries including Automobile, Healthcare, Public-Safety, Gas & Oil, Tourism, Marketing and much more.

Augmented Reality apps are written in special 3D programs & using a special engine like “Unity3D” that allow the developer to tie animation or contextual digital information in the computer program to an augmented reality “Marker/ImageTarget” in the real world. When a computing device’s AR app or browser plug-in receives digital information from a known marker, it begins to execute the marker’s code and layer the correct image or images.

We can combine Global Positioning System (GPS), Machine Vision, Object Recognition, Gesture recognition with AR to develop more functional and useful AR apps.

An Introduction to SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping)

One secret ingredient driving the future of a 3D technological world is a computational problem called SLAM. Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) is a series of complex computations and algorithms which use sensor data to construct a map of an unknown environment while using it at the same time to identify where it is located. SLAM […]
