The mobile AR landscape is diverse and can be confusing. While some top Augmented Reality companies provide a range of products, services and publishing options, there are essentially five basic types of Augmented Reality companies. AR platform companies provide a foundation and the toolbox for experienced software developers working to create advanced Augmented Reality solutions. Some of these companies also build and market their own products (for example, Microsoft and the HoloLens), or provide custom services on the The big news for AR Platform companies in 2017 was Apple and Google both joining the fray, with ARKit and ARCore SDKs, respectively.

By their very nature, platform companies enable the other four types of companies, and their best customers are experienced developer looking to push their platforms AR game companies develop and market their own exclusive AR content. Following a development period that saw AR experiences entirely dependent on printed "markers," the markerless AR era is now upon us. Pokemon Go, released in the summer of 2016, largely popularized the idea of markerless AR in the public imagination, while the Sept. 2017 release of Apple’s iOS 11 put AR-capable hardware in the hands of hundreds of millions of consumers seemingly overnight. Companies in this space include Niantic, Sony, Microsoft, Sphero, POPAR, and Nintendo. Designed for quick and simple AR experiences or campaigns, these companies offer content management tools and a limited menu of basic AR effects.

With self-service AR tools, tech savvy individuals can create simple experiences like launching a single video or simple animations. AR self-service companies are great for publishers, educators, students, and others who want to test or create a simple Augmented Reality experience without investing in a complete custom branded app Some DIY companies also offer AR viewers, customized services and white label options. Companies in this space include Layar, Aurasma, and DAQRI. These companies work directly with brand marketers and agencies to build custom Augmented Reality solutions for major advertising campaigns, trade shows and live events. Custom branded apps allow marketers to combine one-of-a-kind custom Augmented Reality experiences with personalized service and project Custom features frequently include branding specifications, navigation, user interfaces, animations, complex or large-scale AR effects, and more. Services may include 3D modeling, integration with other software services or ecommerce platforms, game development, location-based installations, notifications, complex animations, micro locations, or other advanced AR effects. Companies in this space include Marxent, Gravity Jack and Augment. The newest category of AR companies to emerge are those offering AR solutions tailored to serve niche business verticals such as retail, manufacturing, home goods, medical services, industrial applications, pharmaceutical companies and cosmetic companies. Companies in this space include Ashley Furniture and IKEA for furniture placement, Blippar for advertising, and Marxent’s 3D Cloud™ for consumer retail, manufacturing, industrial, and enterprise sales tools.

Vision is our dominant sense, it dominates conscious experience. We focus our attention on what we look at and perceive a lot of information with our eyes. Thats why augmented reality is trending in marketing now being the number one channel for visual presentation. It absolutely rocks in retail and we have already shared with you some outstanding examples. Wed like to continue our excursion into the augmented reality world and its presence in different spheres. Are you a fan of Converse sneakers and feel like ordering a new pair but hesitating what color or model to choose!

Augmented reality helps architects and engineers present their new ideas in the most detailed and visual way ever. Now you can see how the building will look like and literally feel how it fits in among the cityscape. Or, how about providing maintenance for buildings and products? Augmented reality technology can help with that as well. It comes in handy with the remote assistance to customers as they repair products or complete maintenance procedures by having service manuals with interactive three-dimensional animations via augmented reality. It's nice to see that blogs and articles about augmented reality are increasingly appearing on the authoritative Tier-1 sites like Forbes. So progress is going in the right direction ✈️.

JUMP is an online crowdsourcing community hosted by five national laboratories of the US Department of Energy (DOE) and some of the top private companies in the buildings sector. The goal is to broaden the pool of people from whom DOE seeks ideas and to move these ideas to the marketplace faster. In July, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and CLEAResult launched a Call for Innovation to leverage crowdsourcing to solicit new ideas for saving energy in homes based on smartphone technologies. Modern smartphones are packed with a variety of sensors capable of detecting all kinds of things about their surroundings. Smartphones can determine whether people are home, or close to home, which may be useful for managing their HVAC systems and controlling lighting and appliances.

Smartphones can also gather and analyze data to inform homeowners and improve residential energy efficiency. We responded to the call with a proposal to develop a smartphone app that can be used to create an infrared version of Google's Street View, which we call Infrared Street View. NREL notified us this week that the proposal has been selected as a finalist of the competition and invited us to pitch the idea at the CLEAResult Energy Forum in Austin, TX next month. The app will be based on the SDK of FLIR ONE and the Google Map API, backed by a program running in the cloud to collect, process, and serve data.

249 and works with common Android and iOS devices, making it possible for us to implement this idea. A virtual reality mode will also be added to enhance the visual effect. AR (augmented reality) project. You may be wondering who would be interested in using the app to create the infrared street views. After all, the success of the project depends on the participation of a large number of people. But we are not Google and we do not have the resources to hire a lot of people to do the Our plan is to work with schools. We have a current project in which we work with teachers to promote infrared imaging as a novel way to teach thermal energy and heat transfer in classrooms. This is an area in science education that every school covers. Many teachers -- after seeing an infrared camera in action -- are convinced that infrared imaging is the ultimate way to teach thermal science. If this project is used as a capstone activity in thermal science, it is possible that we can reach and motivate thousands of students who would help make this crowdsourcing project a success. Those who know earlier efforts may consider this initiative a new round to advance the idea.
