Today Scope AR, a pioneer of enterprise-class augmented reality (AR) solutions announced that its AR-based live support video calling application – Remote AR – now supports ARCore.
Working in collaboration with Google, Scope AR have been able to build support for Remote AR for all ARCore-compatible devices which includes over 100 million Android smartphones. By doing this enterprises can now use AR to empower real-time remote collaboration within their workforce across a wide range of devices that are already in use within offices, factor floors and out in the field.
Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR commented on the news by saying: “Augmented reality is continuing to gain interest within enterprise organizations across a variety of applications as a result of its unique ability to deliver on-demand knowledge sharing between a remote user and expert, our support for ARCore demonstrates our commitment to support the most advanced technology available for Remote AR so our customers have the best experience possible on devices being deployed in the workforce today.”
Remote AR users can immediately take advantage of the benefits of the application thanks to the sophisticated new capabilities the platform enables including enhanced motion tracking, environmental understanding and light estimation. The application can be used for example during a live support video call and thanks to the AR capabilities can annotate and add 3D content to a much larger workspace than previously available on a stand Android platform. This results in both the remote worker and the expert able to communicate more effectively, overlaying content onto the real-world view, allowing for seamlessly collaboration while moving through an assembly line or other location.
Now with support for Android ARCore, more devices are now ready and waiting to be used for AR based solutions. Scope AR added support for markerless tracking back in June last year to expand the range of capabilities for Remote AR and now with ARCore, that has growth even more.
Scope AR have released a video, which you can view below, demoing how Remote AR can be used on Android for conducting car maintenance. VRFocus will be sure to bring you all the latest on Remote AR in the future so stay tuned for more.
