Leverage Apple’s AR Kit for more Robust 3d reconstruction from Imagery
Apple’s AR Kit is enabling the hundreds if not thousands of applications to implement new user experiences to improve engagement and ease of use. But there is another benefit to AR Kit that is less known to the industry. AR Kit can be leveraged to improve the robustness and speed of 3d reconstruction from imagery on mobile devices. The team of Computer Vision Scientists at URC Ventures has been working to leverage AR Kit with their existing 3d reconstruction pipeline and the results are promising. Integrations have made significant impact to the robustness and speed of their fist commercial service used by thousands of field workers around the globe (stockpile reports). The integrations have also significantly improved earlier stage solutions in field inspection and maintenance. The team will present their initial experiences with AR Kit and key lessons learned.
