Venture Beat’s Feature on Scope AR: 4 Factors for Enterprises to Consider when Adopting AR

Venture Beat

Venture Beat released an article this week on how Remote AR now supports ARCore, with contributions from Scope AR’s Scott Montgomerie. Here are some highlights:

Know your security needs

Today’s AR solutions are sophisticated enough to meet existing security protocols, it’s a matter of finding an AR partner that values your security needs as much as you do in order to navigate emerging needs together.

This is a whole new industry; there are no workplace standards or certifications for AR yet. It’s up to chief information officers to make sure the technology they’re implementing has the proper vetting. Many Fortune 500 companies are already blazing this trail with the support of AR technology providers who have also made security a priority.

Be device-agnostic

The important thing to remember is that today’s entry-level AR solutions won’t necessarily be what your business needs tomorrow. There will come a day when the cost of AR-specific hardware comes into a range where the benefits of upgrading outweigh the cost.

To future-proof your AR integration, be sure to choose a development partner who can create content for you that someone can adapt to any platform — both the preferred ones of today as well as those of the future.

Keep it simple, scalable

No single member of your team is going to be an expert on everything. By utilizing tools that allow anyone to be a creator, you’ll be able to refine, implement, and deploy best practices as processes change and new elements are introduced. If a single change in your process requires an invoice and a timeline to your AR partner, it’s time to think about switching to a content-first strategy.

Understand workforce perception

There is a growing concern among today’s workforce that new technologies are going to lead to unfathomable job loss. “If AR can lead to a 30 percent improvement in job efficiency,” they may ask, “will it lead to a 30 percent reduction in staff?”

For the adoption of AR to be successful, it’s imperative that you breach the workplace culture barrier to communicate the value that AR brings to the business and the team. Efficiency doesn’t inherently mean fewer workers; it can also mean fewer mistakes. Everybody benefits from a better and safer job.

Tom’s Hardware: Remote AR Technical Assistance Platform Gets ARCore Support


Kevin Carbotte from Tom’s Hardware released an article this week on how Remote AR now supports ARCore. Here are some highlights:

Scope AR continues to improve the Remote AR augmented reality technical assistance platform. The company today announced that it adopted Google ARCore 1.0 to extend the capabilities of Remote AR to a much wider range of devices, which means enterprise customers can now use Scope AR’s advanced tech support tools without deploying specialized hardware.

Scope AR’s Remote AR application is a handy tool for live, on-site technical assistance. With a connected device such as a tablet, smartphone, smartglasses, or AR headset, service technicians can start a live video chat with an off-site expert who can then guide them through unfamiliar procedures or troubleshoot problems. Remote experts can also draw and add 3D content in real-time to give technicians more context to make educated repairs.

Remote AR is now almost completely platform agnostic. The software runs on Android and iOS devices, still supports Tango devices, and runs on Windows Surface devices. Scope AR also introduced support for Microsoft HoloLens and ODG’s R7 Smartglasses. Montgomerie said he is also keeping a close eye on Magic Leap, but he doesn’t expect enterprise customers to adopt the Magic Leap One headset.

The ARCore-enabled version of Remote AR is available today, and all existing license holders should have access automatically.

siliconANGLE: Scope AR brings remote support into your garage with ARCore integration

Kyt Dotson from SiliconANGLE released an article this week on how Remote AR now supports ARCore. Here are some highlights:

Enterprise-class augmented reality company Scope AR today announced the integration of Google Inc.’s ARCore into its remote support video calling application Remote AR. This integration of ARCore extends Remote AR capabilities on newer Android devices and follows the integration of Apple Inc.’s ARKit for greater iOS device support.

Scope AR worked hand-in-hand with Google to build Remote AR app so that it will be compatible with all ARCore-enabled devices, which includes over 100 million Android smartphones.

The Remote AR app allows a remote helper to assist someone else in the field who has a mobile device with a camera and a screen. Normally this will be a smartphone the user probably already has. The onsite technician can point the device at what needs to be discussed and the app allows the support expert to draw on the screen while speaking in order to provide animations and graphics that will appear to be attached to objects in the world.

This is an empowering effect of augmented reality for connecting support and field workers. Someone in the field essentially can give a “window” into a remote workspace, the remote car garage, that gives the support expert a much better idea of what is being looked at and also allows more accurate communication.

With ARCore, Scope AR Brings Real-Time Remote Assistance to More Than 100 Million Android Devices

Scope AR announced this week that ARCore (an Android software development kit available for bringing a whole new level of AR capability to supported devices) will be supported by Remote AR.

The company worked in collaboration with Google to build its Remote AR application for all ARCore-compatible devices, which includes over 100 million Android smartphones. With newly added support for ARCore, Remote AR is one of the most platform agnostic AR tools on the market available for use on Android, iOS and Windows devices simultaneously, as well as select smartglasses and wearables, allowing organizations to easily experience the benefits of AR by using their device of choice.

By using one of the many ARCore – supported devices, Remote AR users can immediately take advantage of the sophisticated new capabilities the platform enables including enhanced motion tracking, environmental understanding and light estimation. For example, during a live support video call within the Remote AR app, users can now annotate and add 3D content to a much larger workspace than previously available on the standard Android platform.

Remote AR delivers the ability to save time and money, as well as improve knowledge transfer and retention by combining AR with live video streaming, voice, 3D animation, screen sharing, whiteboarding and world-locked annotations. Doing so simulates the effectiveness of having an expert on-site guiding a worker step-by-step on what to do.
