Augmented Reality: Google finishes Project Tango to dedicate itself to ARCore

Google's new ARCore augmented reality platform is a must in this area, since the main advantage of ARCore over Tango is that it does not require specific additional hardware to enhance augmented reality experiences. ARCore uses three key technologies to integrate virtual content with the real world through the phone's camera.

The augmented realidada arrives at Android from the hand of Google's ARCore
The Google Project Tango that currently exists, was launched in 2014 and is a five-inch Android prototype, with hardware and software that allowed teams to record full 3D motion through the device while simultaneously creating a map of the environment without need a GPS. Associated applications range from the most mundane, such as measuring the dimensions of your home before buying furniture, simply by moving your phone around the room, to what is most useful, such as helping people with visual disabilities move inside their home. unknown buildings, going through the frivolous, how to turn a corridor into the space of a virtual reality game. With this system, Google even launched and sponsored several teams to stimulate the development of applications and other three-dimensional experiences that depended on the potential of this technology, being the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro perhaps the most popular. But at the end of last week, Google announced that the support given to Project Tango will stop on March 1, 2018 to make way for Google's ARCore, the new augmented reality experience.

Proyecto Tango, acquired and developed by Google, was an ambitious project by ATAP, a division of Motorola Mobility, which is radically innovative and has roots in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, an agency of the Department of Defense of the United States). United, responsible for new technologies for military use). Its goal was to equip smartphones with the ability to create realistic 3D maps and provide virtual experiences as the user moves through the real world.

ARCore by Google, is a platform to create new augmented reality experiences on Android, which perfectly combine the physical and digital worlds transformed the future of work and play to scale through the phone's camera.

Google's ARCore offers a projected preview so that the user can start experimenting with the creation of new Augmented Reality experiences. This preview is the first step in a journey to enable RA capabilities throughout the Android ecosystem.

Fundamentally, Google's ARCore is doing two things: tracking the position of the mobile device as it moves and building its own understanding of the world around it.

The follower of the movement allows the telephone to understand and track its position in relation to the world.

Environmental understanding allows the phone to detect the size and location of flat horizontal surfaces such as the floor or a coffee table.

The estimation of the light allows the telephone to estimate the current lighting conditions of the environment. Google's ARCore motion tracking technology uses the phone's camera to identify hot spots, call features and key points. Track how those points move with time. With a combination of the movement of these points and the readings of the phone's inertial sensors, ARCore determines both the position and orientation of the phone as it moves through space. ARCore's understanding of the real world allows you to place objects, annotations or other information in a way that integrates perfectly with the real world. You can put a sleeping kitten in the corner of your coffee table, or write a box with biographical information of the artist. Movement tracking means you can move and see these objects from any angle, and even if you turn around and leave the room, when you return, the kitten or the annotation will be right where you left off.

Google's ARCore is designed to work on a wide variety of Android phones and qualified compatible devices. ARCore is compatible with the following devices: Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL
Samsung Galaxy S8 (SM-G950U, SM-G950N, SM-G950F, SM-G950F, SM-G950FD, SM-G950W, SM-G950U1)
