Building Real-World AR Software and Hardware with Qualcomm

January 05, 2023

Our shared goal is to help accelerate the development of AR headsets for outdoor use from hardware manufacturers across the industry. We believe true AR will be best experienced on AR headsets made for the outdoors. For our part, we plan to make Lightship VPS available to power location-based AR experiences on as many hardware devices as possible. This map is constantly updated and allows AR devices to establish their real-world position with centimeter-level accuracy, enabling the creation of immersive AR experiences rooted in real-world locations. Using this map, Lightship VPS means a phone or headset can be located down to the centimeter.
