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 […]

Augmented Reality SDK Comparison: Theoretical Vs Actual

AR SDK Expectation (On paper) Vs Reality (Actual Implementation) The core software powering an Augmented Reality experience is known as an AR SDK or AR Engine. It solves the difficult task of fusing the real world with the digital content. The AR Engines’ capabilities define the potential features of the AR application.  Tracking and recognition are two […]


Augmented Reality SDK: Which are the best SDKs for Development in 2017

The role of AR SDK in App Development: Augmented Reality comes down to the following three fundamental questions: where to display what and how. Where: The where might involve areas like 2-D image matching and tracking, 3-D object matching and tracking, SLAM tracking, and location tracking (using GPS) and sensor-based tracking using accelerometer, compass, gyroscope. Sometimes the […]
