“XR, powered by AI and 5G, has the potential to define the next generation of immersive mobile computing.”

”6D is strengthening today’s experiences by building world maps to help lay the foundation for a future where XR devices fully understand the real world to enable developers creating next generation applications that can recognize, interpret, and interact with the world we live in.”

Hugo Swart, senior director of product management and head of XR, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.


Spatial Understanding Within Minutes, Across Platforms


World Persistent

Improve productivity with accurate and persistent 3D maps that are instantly available and easily accessible within minutes.


Real-Time Meshing

Build the 1:1 digital layer of the world providing depth and complexity within seconds to produce your scan or provide spatial awareness to an application.



Build a whole new set of powerful employee and customer experiences that go beyond AR with live segmentation- location-based applications, 3D mesh rendering, robotics and drones.


Shared Across Platforms

You can have experiences shared between users on different devices and across HMDs and multiple platforms for the very first time.


What Sets Apart



Runs on Device in Real-Time

On device technology allows content to stay local and lowers costs without the need for cloud processing, 6D’s mesh is built within milliseconds.


Shared Cross Platform Experiences

Apps built on 6D share the same virtual experience for the first time from different devices, creating persistent and accurate shared experiences for users between phones and HMDs .


Semantic Understanding

Three-dimensional semantic maps are built in real-time across ubiquitous smartphone devices.


Data Privacy

Content stays on device, allowing for advanced features and experiences with data privacy.

What has built ends up functioning a bit like a Waze for AR, using smartphone cameras to build a cloud-based map of the world’s three-dimensional data that will supercharge augmented reality content in a way that could actually make it useful to people.
