In mixed reality, where we blend the digital and physical worlds, there is often a need to align digital content with physical objects. Today, many customers complete this scenario via physical markers such as QR codes combined with manual alignment. Azure Object Anchors enables mixed reality developers to automatically align and anchor 3D content to objects in the physical world. Object Anchors aligns 3D content to real-word objects saving significant touch labor, reducing alignment errors, and improving user experience.
Customers such as Toyota, CAE Healthcare, and Bouvet have evaluated Object Anchors to enable their task guidance and training scenarios. Object Anchors has resulted in reduction in errors involved in aligning 3D content and reduction in time to get started working with digital and physical objects together.
Object Anchors, along with our other Azure mixed reality services – Azure Spatial Anchors and Azure Remote Rendering, enables you to build truly immersive mixed reality experiences and empower your frontline workers, educators, students, designers, and creators to achieve more.
