ARKit for iOS and ARCore for Android have become the leading frameworks for Augmented Reality. These frameworks have brought Augmented Reality closer to Physical reality than ever. Earlier with AR Frameworks, we were only able to detect device orientation i.e. 3 DOF (Degrees of Freedom), but with Image processing and machine learning, we are now able to track 6 DOF including the device movement which makes the core of these frameworks.
AR 3D catalog for Android and iOS
ProtoTech built a custom AR application for a California based firm
The application uses custom WebGL importers for Unity3D and Apple’s SceneKit to bring a 3D model into augmented reality with ARCore and ARKit.
The model once brought to AR can now be animated or exploded
Almost all the features from SceneKit can be used in ARKit which includes physics, animations, particle system and much more.
The lights in AR will directly change its intensity with respect to the environment lighting in the Physical world. Environment maps will be created at runtime with respect to the images detected by the camera through AR
