Cameras so far have been successfully trained to recognize human faces, but no one has built a similar technology to recognize physical outdoor locations. For the first time, Sturfee has created a computer vision solution that is trained to recognize places on the ground using images from satellites circling the globe. This computer vision platform empowers a user’s camera to instantly recognize surroundings and pull 3D building geometry and ground plane data derived from the satellite sources to give AR applications city-scale spatial understanding. The result is a highly scalable solution capable of powering AR across entire geographies. To give an example, we can enable a San Francisco-sized city in just a week, and detect and update any ground changes even faster.
