Apple ARKit provides multiple tools to help you create stunning Augmented Reality experiences for millions of users on iOS platforms. It has released a state-of-the-art module titled “Depth API” that offers a new technique to utilize the detailed depth information collected by LiDAR Scanner on iPhone and iPad devices. The LiDAR Scanner is programmed with superior understanding capabilities that enable Depth API to perform advanced features to enhance the user environment.
The next best feature is Location Anchors that allows you to create AR experiences in famous locations such as places of interest or landmarks. You can modify the coordinates of a particular area like its altitude, latitude, and longitude. The captured scenery can be viewed from multiple perspectives, which is very similar to using a camera lens to observe original objects.
Other features offered by Apple ARKit include Scene Geometry, Instant AR, and Motion Capture. With Scene geometry, you can make a topological map of an area and develop an understanding of the surroundings by using labels. Instant AR takes assistance from the LiDAR Scanner, which provides quick plane detection to help you position virtual objects in the natural world. Lastly, motion capture lets you record the movement of an individual without using a second camera.
AugRay is an augmented reality-based app that enables a user to create a 3D model of any product by scanning it with a camera. You can use AugRay for educational purposes, but its functions are mostly made to enhance user experience with the end product or any product sample for reviews in the business. Advertising the product in augmented reality is the modern way of a brand campaign. As a brand, you can advertise your product with the users without having them buy it.
You can use it to review clothes, shoes, in the automotive industry, and for virtual room tours. One of the biggest features is the Geo-Location that allows users to explore the space with tags on the available subspaces inside it. You can demonstrate your project via this app if your product is too big or heavy to be shipped to the client, or you cannot travel to the actual site to experience the product.
