|Coordinator||Tangar Technologies AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 894 600|
|Project duration||November 2018 - November 2019|
Purpose and goal
The project aimed to prove Tangar´s technology for indoor navigation with a full-scale test, which is an important part of the company´s future funding. Technical tests and user tests were carried out in the grocery trade where a scanned shop was linked to available product data and compatibility with both ARKit and ARCore. The user tests were documented and the results of these are used today as part of the company´s sales and investment material.
Expected results and effects
The project resulted in: - Deeper collaboration with customers in the grocery trade and industrial customers. - Scanning (point cloud) by a grocery retailer for a full-scale test. - Structure for handling product data and a partner for product data in the grocery trade. - The company managed to link product data and point cloud with navigation with ARKit and ARCore. - Tests with offers in 3D space. And documented results of these tests. - User tests for testing the technology and compiling a full-scale and a documentation of the tests.
Planned approach and implementation
The work was carried out by Tangar´s staff and hired consultants. The store was scanned with a backpack that created the point cloud. Subsequently, the product data was linked to the cloud and made compatible for navigation with the AR frameworks ARKit and ARCore. User tests were conducted in which the users with the "thing aloud" method togheter with follow-up questions. All results were documented. The results were good, with improvement results mainly in monotonous environments.
