Advantages or differentiators
Lightweight AR design, hence a wider range of compatible devices. It relies mostly on device’s sensors like accelerometer and gyroscope, instead of heavy computational computer vision algorithms.
Optimized 3D real-time rendering, hence saving battery life.
Minimal UI, straight-forward UX and gamified navigation based on natural human way-finding.
Proprietary ATP (adapted to a path), instead of exact path, using a flying arrow, which follows roads and supports users to find a way in a pedestrian environment.
