Born from a research and business collaboration between Inglobe Technologies and VTT, the ARmedia 3D SDK is today one of the most powerful Augmented Reality SDKs in the market. ARmedia SDK features a unique 3D tracking approach that is capable of recognizing and tracking objects independently of their size and geometry.
The SDK is employed in a variety of Smart Maintenance, AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction) and Cultural Heritage applications to provide users with advanced and contextual visual access to information in the 3D space thus bridging the gap between the physical and the digital world.
ARmedia 3D SDK is currently cross-platform (by supporting iOS and Android) and supports different authoring environments, like for example Unity3D. The new release will bring an enhanced version of the technology to the community of developers with extended support for Windows and a number of additional features, like Geolocation, Planar NFT and SLAM for automatic 3D mapping and tracking of unknown environments. Some of these features are already available in the new Inglobe Technologies end-user platform, Hyperspaces.
Additionally, the ARmedia 3D SDK will support a variety of Smartglasses including Epson Moverio BT-200 and VR headsets like Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard thanks to the new VR Panorama feature.
“The new release of the ARmedia 3D SDK is the outcome of a fruitful collaboration between VTT and Inglobe. We share with VTT a common framework and perspective that made us all form part of the same team”, declared Graziano Terenzi, CEO at Inglobe Technologies. “The new features will make the ARmedia 3D SDK a unique tool to create not only Augmented Reality experiences but also Virtual Reality applications, thus providing developers with a common Mixed Reality framework on mobiles.”
” VTT is proud to bring leading 3D tracking technology from research projects to international markets together with Inglobe Technologies”, says Dr Charles Woodward, Principal Scientist at VTT. “Our latest markerless, point cloud and feature-based tracking solutions enable the implementation of practical AR applications even for the most demanding environments. “
The ARmedia 3D SDK relies on a set of mobile and cloud-based services that allow programmers create the assets required to build their own applications. For this reason a flexible subscription plan is available. Developers can register for the SDK on the ARmedia developer portal and start experiment with the SDK right away.
