ARPOC (Augmented Reality with Point Of Interest)
Augmented Reality (AR) refers to a simple combination of real and virtual (computer-generated) worlds. AR can be used to add information to our reality. Best known and simple example for AR – While watching live coverage of Cricket match on television, we see some kind of logo of well- known sponsor appears. So here real world is live coverage and virtual world is added sponsor logo. On the same line we have created a POC based on AR to show the Points of Interest around you. To get the real world’s feel application uses Camera Controller which is available in iOS. To display virtual information i.e. Points Of Interests, on the camera controller application uses some calculations which are done using GPS, POI data and compass capability of the device. The virtual information is made interactive to navigate the app to show the details related to it.
