Spaces is the next generation of markerless Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality with Scene Recognition
Augmented Reality (AR) comes in different flavors. The most advanced type of experience is Spaces that is making use of Scene Recognition.
When designing a Spaces experience, a detailed 3D model of a real-life location is created. Inside this model, AR content can be positioned with very high precision. This approach allows for complex experiences like scene recognition without the need for a target or very precise location tracking.
ARKit & ARCore Integration
ARKit & ARCore were developed by Apple and Google. These frameworks ensure homogeneous AR experiences across different mobile devices. Onirix Spaces makes use of ARKit and ARCore.
Besides providing all this value, ARKit and ARCore are complex frameworks that require knowledge about linear algebra and multiple view geometry. Onirix is harvesting the power of these two platforms while providing an extra layer of convenience for developers. More about the Frameworks used in Onirix can be found here.
Instant Tracking with SLAM
Instant tracking allows the user to place content inside of scenes without the need for a marker or a surface. Instant tracking does not rely on object recognition or markers as it tracks features of the physical environment. It makes use of SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) which is capable of understanding the physical reality of a scene. This makes it more precise than GPS tracking and perfect for indoor usage.
Spaces can be used, whenever precision is key to the experience. Below you find a few different use cases that make use of Spaces and its advanced possibilities.
