uSens Broadcasts Cell SLAM-based Inside-out Positional Monitoring Resolution for Digital and Augmented Environments
uSens, Inc., a pioneer in interactive monitoring options for immersive augmented, virtual and combined reality experiences, at present announced the development of a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) primarily based cellular inside-out 6DOF positional monitoring answer.
Designed from the bottom up for cellular devices by way of superior machine studying and computer vision methods, uSens’ light-weight algorithm is quicker, extra correct and has decrease latency than different cellular monitoring options. Following within the footsteps of uSens’ pioneering 26DOF (levels of freedom) hand tracking technology, uSens SLAM supplies builders with one other answer to create content material that permits users to really feel current and immersed in virtual worlds.
“We carry around a supercomputer in our pocket at all times – our smartphones – and giving developers the tools to enhance the user experience on hardware we all already possess is key to increasing adoption,” mentioned Dr. Yue Fei, chief expertise officer and co-founder of uSens. “Apple entering the market with ARKit, joining Samsung and Google, has focused the industry on creating untethered, mobile content. Consumers are excited for the coming wave of AR content and we’re focused on building the core interactive technologies for developers so they can create experiences that feel real and immersive, which is what consumers are demanding.”
SLAM is a collection of computations and algorithms that constructs a virtual map of an surroundings, which might then be augmented with helpful and value-adding digital content material relying in your location inside this area. uSens’ marker-less, inside-out cellular SLAM tracks a user’s location by constantly scanning and ‘learning’ about their surroundings by way of digicam imaging. This permits a user’s place to be tracked in unknown and altering environments, which is a requirement and a much better user experience on cellular.
Marker-based or outside-in SLAM, utilized by gaming-focused hardware, requires markers or sensors to be positioned round a room with a view to work together with the ARVR system or Head Mounted Show (HMD) cameras. This isn’t potential in wide-scale cellular virtual experiences, because the mounted positions of the markers can not adapt to altering environments.
Dr. Fei continued, “Positional tracking is required to give objects and experiences real meaning in virtual environments. Computing systems can create color, shape, size, etc., but what’s missing in the mix is position. The world is not flat, so as our technology begins to blend the physical and virtual world, it’s increasingly important that it interacts with the world in three dimensions. We’re already in discussions with a number of consumer-level companies to utilize our SLAM technology. Accurately tracking a user’s position will allow the entire industry to take a giant leap forward and our solutions will help bring on the next generation of amazing ARVR content.”
