Marker-Based Augmented Reality:
The Marker-Based AR applications are also known as image recognition or recognition based Augmented Reality. This kind of app uses the device camera to recognise objects from the QR code or real-world images i.e (NFT or CAD-based detection) used as the markers. The marker-based augmented reality app development helps in creating 3D simulations of the objects or architectures without building it in physical form.
Markerless Augmented Reality (SLAM)
The Markerless Augmented Reality is one of the most widely used and implemented type of AR technology, PokemonGO is a great example. Simultaneous localization and mapping technology (i.e SLAM) is the technology behind markerless AR. The technology behind markerless augmented reality is Simultaneous localization and mapping technology (i.e SLAM) is one of the most advanced technology in augmented reality. Markerless AR triggers in a different form, could be geolocation or user input combined with spatial recognition.
Location-Based Augmented Reality
Location-Based AR is also known as position based AR and GPS based Augmented technology. It basically relies on mobile sensor-based technologies such as GPS, compass, and accelerometer. In this geolocation based AR, Digital data is virtually placed on real-time location, allowing users to access it using AR ready devices. Markerless AR is of two categories indoor and outdoor. Indoor AR uses GPS, whereas Outdoor AR requires a GPS signal. Along with the mobile devices it can be used on Smart Glasses such as Epson and Vuzix which not all augmented reality app development company can build.
Projection Augmented Reality
Projection Augmented Reality is also known as Spatial Augmented Reality (SAR). As the name suggests, this AR technology projects a beam of light to display graphical information onto the real world physical objects. Laser plasma technology is utilised to project a 3D interactive hologram into mid-air. This AR projection function allows human to interact with the projected beams by sensing the touch of the humans on the light. This kind of AR application development helps in analysing the structure and configurations of projected images.
Superimposition Based Augmented Reality
The Superimposition AR technology is a kind of haptic communication of brand and user. Superimposition Based AR replaces the original appearance of the object with an augmented, fully or partially enriched view of the same object. The object recognition plays an essential role in superimposition based AR. IKEA Catalog app is a great example of superimposition based augmented reality basically, it allows users to places virtual furniture in their home with the help of augmented reality.
Outlining Augmented Reality
Outlining Augmented Reality is different from traditional AR technology. It doesn't project any object in the physical environment, instead, it uses image recognition to outline boundaries and shapes. One of the common use cases of the outlining augmented reality application is in the high tech car, it recognises the boundaries and the road in low-light and creates an outline for the driver.
