XRAD Remote Positioning

ABOUT THE PROJECT

WebVR remote positioning for AR visualisation.

Winner of the Community Prize at the Scape Technologies Hackathon 2019.

XRAD Remote Positioning is the first platform using WebVR in combination with ARKit for context-aware remote placement of any content on 3D maps and real-time visualisation in the real world.

For the remote positioning of the objects in WebVR, we used A-Frame and a high detail 3D model of a London area created by AccuCities, which made it possible for us to achieve unprecedented precision.

The same 3D content is then made available in real time to other users who can view it in the real world through their ARKit-capable devices.

To localise the iPhone device we used the Scape Technologies hyper-accurate vision-based positioning service.
