Westwing – Accurate furniture placement
2D marker tracking has become the standard for Augmented Reality over the past years. Unfortunately, the user experience has mostly suffered as the user had to print the image marker himself. Therefore we have developed an easier solution utilizing something everybody has at home which is always the same size.
The solution was as logical as simple: a DinA4 sheet which could be a magazine or something similar the customer has at home.
Utilizing Fraunhofer IDG technology, Augmentaio has developed a reliable tracking method, which is no longer dependent on predefined feature points on the marker, but only takes an edge model for referencing.
Starting out from a DinA4 sheet helps to project true-to-scale objects into reality
Design and implementation of the tracking
Design and creation of 3D models
True units of measurement in a centimeter-accurate range (variance <1% vs. ARKit of 2-3%)
Vision Lib SDK
With this demo it was possible to show furniture in AR exact to the centimeter, before ARKit/ARCore was even invented. Therefore, users got a better imagination on how possible furniture would look like in their home.
