The South Korean provider of augmented reality (AR) software development kit (SDK), MAXST launched MAXST VPS, a spatial AR platform.
VPS or Visual Positioning Service is a technology that constructs a 3D spatial map for both indoor and outdoor AR content creations to narrow down to a user’s location.
Unlike GPS technology which can malfunction during indoor use and can include location errors for outdoor operation, VPS will provide more precise navigational information to a user as per the company.
VPS technology will also support augmented reality content such as AR navigation, AR advertisement, and AR games in addition to the positioning functionalities.
John Cho, CTO of MAXST, said, “MAXST VPS technology will be available for everyone to use, and MAXST will be a medium that connects all aspects of reality to the virtual space in the world of the metaverse.”
The company will offer the VPS service through an SDK to enable location positioning and AR services to function both indoors and outdoors through compatible portable devices such as smartphones, smart glasses, and robots. The SDK will be a Unity-based authoring tool and support both Android and iOS devices.
The company stated on its website about taking “steady steps forward to develop technology that encompasses all areas of augmented reality, creating a better-augmented reality world based on clear conviction rather than the possibility of augmented reality.”
