Team AR-row: An Indoor AR Navigation App (2019)

AR-row is an indoor AR navigation app that uses machine learning + SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) to provide a reliable, high accuracy means of indoor navigation— along with auto-correction and auto-recalibration. Users can select a destination from a map, scan a marker to detect their current location, and follow AR arrows to their destination. To ensure safety while walking, the team included a compass mode that allows users to still view directional information while their phone is down.
