I specifically worked on designing and coding the WebVR remote positioning client and editing the 3D model to ensure correct AR visualisation.
XRAD Remote Positioning is the first platform using WebVR in combination with AR for context-aware remote placement of any content on 3D maps and real-time visualisation in the real world.
For the remote positioning of the objects in WebVR, we used A-Frame and a high detail 3D model of a London area created by AccuCities, which made it possible for us to achieve unprecedented precision.
The same 3D content is then made available in real time to other users who can view it in the real world through their AR-capable devices.
To localise the iPhone device and display the AR content we used the Scape Technologies hyper-accurate visual positioning service.
