Qualcomm Vuforia brings Smart Terrain 3D AR to your mobile
Qualcomm Vuforia™ is an industry-leading software platform for creating AR applications for mobile, it supports a thriving community of 65,000 developers that have created over 5,500 commercial mobile AR applications with the largest brands worldwide.
Smart Terrain™ capability for the Qualcomm Vuforia™ platform is a breakthrough vision capability that enables a new level of immersion and interactivity in augmented reality gaming experiences.The Smart Terrain™ demo is powered by PrimeSense’s Capri™ 3D sensor and OpenNI® SDK, provided by PrimeSense™, and together presents the 1st mobile platform ever to offer 3D sensing.
Smart Terrain™ enables users to create their own play space and interact with the physical world in ways never before experienced. It allows game physics to apply to real world surfaces and objects, using the depth image provided by Capri. For example, game characters are able to navigate around, collide and jump over objects or even fall off the edge of a table.
3D sensing makes Augmented Reality more real, more intuitive, it makes it truly interactive. Depth allows AR experience such as:
- Robust and markerless AR for 360 view
- Interactions between the virtual and the real worlds
- Collision detections and occlusions between real and virtual objects
Smart Terrain will be available to developers in Spring 2014 with support for the PrimeSense™ Capri depth sensor.
