Building Waypoints Using Augmented Reality

Introduction

A lot of time has passed since Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) were introduced to people, and it was a very promising announcement. The new technologies were supposed to change and improve multiple spheres of our life. Now we have a bunch of applications using AR technology. Those applications vary from games (like Warhammer 40,000 free blade, The Machines) to some examples that really help us in our everyday life (AR MeasureKit, Sky Guide AR, IKEA Place). All those applications use only the phone itself, but the most useful outcome of the technology is when it is combined with another. Augmented reality can be combined with GPS locations to provide visual directions in different situations. Today we have a lot of navigators which guide users from point A to point B. The thing is that the user can’t see this path in the real world. Only on the map. And here augmented reality comes to help us. Let’s build an augmented reality app which will guide us along the path displayed on the map. To perform augmented reality development, I will use the Swift language, but those examples can be easily converted to Objective-C code.

AR Experience: Successes and Failures

One day an excellent idea arose in our company: to create something connected with augmented reality. We decided to create a mobile app for our office guests. It was supposed to make visiting our office more informative and impressive.
For example, the app was to help a visitor find their way around our premises. It was also supposed to recognize markers and give hints as to where different rooms are situated.

So, we decided to implement the following functions:

  • Marker recognition: markers are caught by the camera and additional data is shown;
  • Face recognition: the name and position of a person seen by the camera are shown;
  • Navigation: the current position and main directions (meeting rooms, exits, etc.) are displayed.
