Augmented Reality “AR” synchronizes digital data with the physical world in real time to enhance a user’s experience of their environment, and pushes the boundaries of vision and graphics processing, together with user interface, device and display design.
Although AR’s ‘killer app’ hasn’t yet emerged, powerful technologies for merging sensor and vision processing with graphical augmentations will soon enable new generations of mobile applications to deliver unprecedented utility and immersiveness in many application domains.
For silicon and system vendors, AR presents significant challenges and opportunities for differentiation. Not only do AR-capable mobile devices require real-time sensor, vision and graphics processing; this diverse processing must seamlessly interoperate at unprecedented levels of performance, otherwise AR applications will fail to engage users and will place heavy burdens on network operators’ infrastructure.
At the AR Forum, the Khronos Group describes its open, cross-platform API standards that provide essential acceleration for graphics, vision and sensor processing, and interoperate to enable compelling AR-enabled user experiences, creating new opportunities in the mobile ecosystem.
The AR Forum also features Khronos Member demonstrations highlighting AR-ready platforms based on Khronos APIs, and ends in a panel discussion.
