Functions We Can Build into an AR App

Scene detection

Our AR apps scan real-life surroundings with the camera lens, perceive gathered data as an image on a coordinate plane, and translate it into a depth map to ensure realistic 3D model placement.

Image and object recognition

Along with scene understanding, our AR apps can be trained to recognize specific 2D images and 3D real-life objects and augment them with the relevant text or model data on the device screen.

Motion tracking

Common for all smartphones and tablets, GPS, gyroscope, and accelerometer allow our AR apps dynamically resize and calibrate augmentations on the screen as you and your device move around.

Light estimation

With the help of smart light estimation algorithms, our AR apps can automatically adjust the lighting of the 3D model to naturally match that of the scene in the camera lens.

Answer a few questions about your business needs to help our consultants estimate the cost of your unique AR app quicker.


*What is your industry?

*What type of AR app do you need?

*Which app version do you need?

Do you plan to develop a marker-based or a markerless app?


Marker-based apps recognize a predefined pictogram or a QR code and replace it with a 3D model – they work best for static objects such as art pieces in a gallery. Markerless apps position the AR model with the help of GPS, built-in sensors, and complex computer vision.

A Quick Dive into Our Technology Expertise

AR app types for smartphones, tablets, and AR glasses


Such apps recognize a specific, custom marker – a pictogram or a QR code – and then substitute it with pre-set data on the device screen. There can be infinite numbers of both codes and assigned augmentations. Marker-based apps work best when augmentations are tied to a specific object, for instance, a human anatomy model for medical education or a particular art piece in a gallery.

Markerless (location-based)

To realistically position AR model without using any markers, apps use GPS, built-in sensors, as well as complex computer vision algorithms. This type is used when augmentations are supposed to adapt to various locations and, for instance, accurately place a furniture piece in a room, show navigation arrows in a tourist spot or point at the best bargain on a product shelf.

AR development is wider than 3D modeling

If you need a marker-based app with entry-level functionality that just overlays digital content over images (like digital face masks and filters), you can use any WebAR platform that commonly offers a drag-and-drop tool to create 3D models. But the creation of markerless apps with more sophisticated business algorithms requires the involvement of experienced AR developers.

How We Achieve Visual and Content Consistency in AR Applications

The biggest challenges in any AR app development process are associated with object/scene recognition, occlusion, and content creation & maintenance. We skillfully handle all these tasks and provide content-rich and reliable AR solutions.

Content implementation

Whether you want an app that augments reality with 3D models or with overlaying textual data, we offer all-round assistance in implementing your AR app’s content. Our designers create detailed 3D models based on photos, illustrations or even rough sketches, while UI/UX experts plan the layout of the augmenting data to make it display conveniently on any mobile device.

Regular content updates and maintenance

It’s only natural for your app’s metadata, 3D model database or pool of images for auto-recognition to require changes and expansion over time. As we always look forward to steady and long-term cooperation, we offer a continuous update of your app’s content and help your app grow along with your business.

Scene understanding and occlusion

We make sure that your app precisely recognizes scenes and objects in various conditions and places 3D models with realistic occlusion. The learning of our object/scene recognition and depth perception algorithms doesn’t end with the release: while apps are being used, they gather new data that we tap in our update packages to make the apps even smarter.

We're excited to discuss your AR needs!
