The aim of the project was to create the application in addition to the booklet, dedicated to the new district Park in the district Novaya Borovaya (Minsk, Belarus).
The application was created on the basis of Vuforia technology, which allows to track target images from the booklet. The technology allows the user to place 3D models, animations, videos, text on the image targets.
What Was Done
Via the devices that support ARKit (iOS 11), users have the ability to place virtual objects on any horizontal plane, markerless tracking. Marker tracking is used on Android devices and devices that do not support ARKit, 3D content is placed on the target images.
The augmented reality application Park allows the user to appreciate the advantages of the new district, to choose an apartment with suitable parameters, to learn about the infrastructure of the area. The application contains videos that are reproduced on the top of the image targets using a special shader that combines the real world and the video into one whole composition.
The application includes 3D models created on the basis of real engineering drawings:
- 3D model of the block, including 3D models of each house, yard, parking area and infrastructure of the block
- 3D model of a real two-level apartment
- 3D apartment plannings
The application also includes animated 3D models of the playground and sports ground created by our designers from scratch based on photos of real objects.
For devices supporting ARKit technology, the application contains additional functionality that allows the user to place 3D models on any place. The user can also change the size of the models, rotate and move them.
