MAXST's newest 'Sensor Fusion SLAM' solution, which integrates the use of camera with IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor is available via iOS now. MAXST Sensor Fusion SLAM combines IMU sensor, which is already equipped on cameras in most smartphones, to provide as effective yet powerful SLAM. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, widely known as SLAM is the core technology for autonomous driving. Most often, SLAM is a technology that combines the Lidar sensor with a came
In 2014 and 2015, Samsung Electronics applied for patents related to smart contact lenses in Korea and the US. It was patented in 2016 and 2019 respectively. ▲Samsung’s smart lens domestic patent application ( 10-2016-0141586 ) Domestic patent application does not involve display unit while American patent application involves it. Research to put displays in contact lenses began in 2011. Because it is an attractive goal, many researches have been conducted in various ways. Se
AR Glass is a wearable device in the form of glasses that implements augmented reality (AR) content on a transparent lens. It is possible to display a 100-inch wide screen-level display in front of your eyes while wearing it like ordinary glasses, or to use various AR contents. Unlike virtual reality (VR) devices, where the view is obstructed, you can see ahead while using the service. It supports an extended reality (XR) experience that combines reality and AR contents by ut
The smartphone and tablet PC craze that has swept the world since several years ago is changing not only the consumption tendency but also the lifestyle patterns. As such, these days IT devices have a very close relationship with our daily lives. That is because anyone can easily use the new technology that can only be seen in movies. One of the representative new technologies is “Augmented Reality”. However, many people confuse 'Virtual Reality (VR)' with augmented reality.
Figure 1. General SLAM System Overview Camera, Lida, Depth Camera, IMU and GPS are input data of SLAM. Camera is being used very frequently among the public. The price of camera is cheap and camera is the basis of SLAM recently. Lidar possesses very high degree of precision. However, the price of Lidar is very expensive. So, it is mainly used in SLAM, which requires high reliability. Depth camera is installed on Apple’s iPad Pro, Google’s Tango, and several Android devices fr

The city-scale augmented reality platform MAXST has announced their newest ‘Sensor Fusion SLAM’ solution, which integrates the use of a camera with IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor. This solution will be unveiled to the public on the 27th. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, widely known as SLAM is the core technology for autonomous driving. Most often, SLAM is a technology that combines the Lidar sensor with a camera and generates 3D maps of a real world. However, t
MAXST is listed with Vuforia, Apple ARKit, and Google ARCore in AR POST! The Most Frequently Used Augmented Reality SDKs The following list does not ennumerate the best SDKs per se. The order we used in presenting these AR SDKs does not represent a ranking, but is purely for convenience. 1. Vuforia Vuforia is extremely popular among augmented reality app developers because it offers a wide range of functions, such as: Text recognition for over 100,000 words in the English voc
