Types of Augmented Reality App Development:
There are two major forms of augmented reality app development, location-based and marker-based. Both have varied applications and solutions. Here is a brief introduction to each:Location-based augmented reality app development:
Location-based AR apps utilize various features of mobile devices that can monitor the position of a device like GPS, cellular network etc. This enables augmented reality apps to provide location-based data specific to each device. Some uses of this technology include providing help with directions in a city, locating a vehicle in a parking lot etc.Marker-based augmented reality app development:
Marker-based augmented reality apps focus on using the device software to identify patterns (like QR code or plane surface) in the image obtained from the device camera. Then an overlay is cast on the device screen over the real-world image procured from the camera. This overlay can be 3D, 2D or animated.
