Improvements to Instant World Tracking for WebAR

17:20 - 18:05 BST | 23rd Jun

Web-based AR (WebAR) through its broad distribution helps make AR accessible to more people by bringing immersive experiences directly to the mobile web browser with no app required. Zappar’s Instant World Tracking technology enables instant placement of 3D content directly in the users’ environment but has to date had some limitations when compared to the world tracking solutions available in native apps.

In this session, join Zappar's Chief R&D Officer, Simon Taylor, CTO Connell Gauld and Senior Research Engineer, Shuang Liu for a sneak preview of Zappar’s next-generation Instant World Tracking technology built from the ground up to address these limitations whilst remaining highly performant and easy-to-use.
