How is ARCore Different From ARkit

Published on 10 October 17

Are you aware of the Google’s mega move towards Augmented Reality Technology? Do you know who the competitors of Apple’s ARkit are? Do you still wonder about the most popping term Augmented Reality?

If you are still trying to figure out, what do these words mean, I invite you on a journey with me to unlock the most celebrated technological term, Augmented Reality.

A Brief on Augmented Reality

‘Augment’ means to make things bigger or larger and ‘Reality’ denotes the state of things or situation as they exist rather than any notional idea of them. Concluding the literal meaning of this popular term sums up to kind of imposed artificial figures, art, graphics, or any changes to emphasize the existing reality of a person or thing.

  1. It allows the phone to track and analyze its relative position to the world through motion tracking.
  2. The size and location of the flat horizontal surfaces are detected by phone through environmental understanding.
  3. The lightning condition of the environment is easily estimated by the phone through light estimation.

Top augmented reality companies including Google, Apple and Microsoft too are bringing innovative concepts to augmented reality software feature and functions. Recently, after the launch of Apple ARkit platform for iOS; Google, being one among the top firms wishing to be the next big augmented reality company has also announced similar platform for Android known as ARCore. It is developed as a platform for the developer in which they don’t need any hardware. This platform enables developers to produce an app which can be used to overlay digital objects on the app’s camera view……
