SAN FRANCISCO, March 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Scope AR, the pioneer of enterprise-class augmented reality (AR) solutions, today announced that its AR-based live support video calling application - Remote AR - now supports ARCore, an Android software development kit available for bringing a whole new level of AR capability to supported devices. The company worked in collaboration with Google to build its Remote AR application for all ARCore-compatible devices, which includes over 100 million Android smartphones. In doing so, enterprises can now more easily use AR to empower real-time, remote collaboration among its workforce across a wide array of devices already in use in the office, factory floor or out in the field.
With newly added support for ARCore, Remote AR is one of the most platform agnostic AR tools on the market available for use on Android, iOS and Windows devices simultaneously, as well as select smartglasses and wearables, allowing organizations to easily experience the benefits of AR by using their device of choice.
"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," said Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR. "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."
By using one of the many ARCore-supported devices, Remote AR users can immediately take advantage of the sophisticated new capabilities the platform enables including enhanced motion tracking, environmental understanding and light estimation. For example, during a live support video call within the Remote AR app, users can now annotate and add 3D content to a much larger workspace than previously available on the standard Android platform. As a result, both the remote worker and expert could more effectively overlay content onto the real-world view of the worker in order to seamlessly collaborate while walking through a complex assembly or maintenance procedure or troubleshooting a problem. A video showcasing how Remote AR can be used with ARCore to conduct car maintenance can be viewed here.
Remote AR delivers the ability to save time and money, as well as improve knowledge transfer and retention by combining AR with live video streaming, voice, 3D animation, screen sharing, whiteboarding and world-locked annotations. Doing so simulates the effectiveness of having an expert on-site guiding a worker step-by-step on what to do.
