Advrty is developing a revolutionary brand advertising platform for Virtual and Mixed Realities. Our unique method to define, deliver, experience and measure ads in these new realities has the potential to globally disrupt traditional media ad spend and will play a crucial part in the monetization of games and apps in these new digital experiences.
At Advrty you get an opportunity to work in a startup environment with an experienced team focused on the technologies and digital behaviors of tomorrow. Doing a master thesis together with us is possible both at our office and remotely. We are located at Embassy, a VR-focused business hub in the very heart of Stockholm city. Projects requiring specific hardware are suitable for students with opportunity to join us at the office for the whole or a part of their project.
The scope of this thesis is to develop a navigation system to guide a user to their destination. While today's devices require us to focus on a small screen and mapping a 2D map to the environment around us, using an AR HMD such as Microsoft HoloLens gives us the opportunity to augment the reality with directions visualised with 3D graphics as we enjoy the surrounding environment.
As the Hololens doesn’t have an integrated GPS sensor, a connection can be done to a smartphone with such sensor. The challenge with this thesis is to map the physical world (through GPS) with the HoloLens’ understanding of the world. With these capabilities a lot of other applications can also be developed, which uses the current position and orientation to augment the reality in different ways. Moving AR experiences to the outdoor environment.
