6D.ai Reality Platform Overview
WORLD SCALE CONTENT PERSISTENCE
6D.ai relocalization technology ensures that digital content stays in place between sessions, and is easy to find again when a new session starts nearby. The location of that digital content is not limited to the host device, but available to any other device that has the permission to access it.
Users have one app session, close the app, and return to it weeks or months later with all the AR content just like they left it.
Groups of users can asynchronously add digital content to a location over a long period of time.
Pre-scan time is decreased for users that start an app session in a location that has already been visited by another user.
Real time on device meshing of the environment allows digital objects to be occluded by and interact with the complexity of the world, going beyond the simplistic planes that current tech gives you.
Objects and content instantly see the real world and respond to it
The digital content can be occluded and react to real world objects, finally feeling as if they are realistically part of the world
REAL-TIME SPATIAL AWARENESS
The 6D.ai platform uses a standard built-in smartphone camera to build a real-time, three-dimensional semantic, crowd sourced map of the world, all in the background.
No depth camera is needed to capture the world in 3D.
AR content can be blocked from view - occluded - by real world objects.
A digital mesh of a space can be scanned and shared instantly, annotations and objects are placed persistently and accurately, location-based applications become spatially aware.
CROSS-PLATFORM SHARED EXPERIENCES
6D.ai runs on Android and iOS as well as select HMDs to make it easier for developers to ship their AR content to multiple mobile devices. Users of those apps can also share experiences from different devices for the first time:
Player 1 starts a session, automatically uploading a map of the location.
Player 2 opens the app on a different platform, and quickly joins as soon as the background processes successfully relocalizes.
No anchors, no platform borders, from the user’s point of view, it just works.
PRIVACY OF DATA
Privacy is of utmost importance. As the world moves toward the mirror world, it is critical that developers are able to build applications that deliver the best solutions for work, play and socializing without infringing on people’s private data. 6D.ai keeps image data on the device and is built on proprietary cloud data systems.
How it Works
The 6D Reality Platform enhances the AR apps you build, helping them interact with the world in a natural and realistic way. Current AR limits a user to a small area, where content is lost as soon as an app is closed. Devices using the 6D Reality Platform have a deeper understanding of the world around a user.
MONO RGB CAMERA
The 6D.ai API uses a standard built-in smartphone camera to build a real-time, three-dimensional semantic, crowd sourced map of the world, all in the background. No depth camera is needed to capture the world in 3D.
PERSISTENCE & 3D MESH CREATION
Using the 3D mesh generated by the 6D.ai API, developers build world-scale apps where assets are persistent, responsive to occlusion, and synced between multiple users more efficiently.
6D.ai’s API also allows you to use 3D spatial data that provides the foundation for 6D.ai AI neural-networks to help developers’ applications truly understand the world.
ARCORE & ARKIT
Spatial computing apps were only possible to build on expensive Head Mounted Displays but with 6D.ai are now possible on ARCore and ARKit smartphones through our native integration.
