【苹果ARKit再添神器!AR导航地图拯救路痴】开发人员Andrew Hart将ARKit与Apple的CoreLocation配合使用,创建了AR地图和导航功能。确定目的地后,手机会自动开启摄像头并提供AR导航,将指导箭头和图钉定位放在现实世界中。相比于传统的语音和平面导航,AR导航以实时街道视图,辅以大量指向目的地的虚拟箭头和路径,更加直观、真实。

This is how Apple's ARKit is about to change how everyone uses the iPhone

Even if you've seen Apple's ARKit in action, there's a chance you're still not convinced it'll mean much for you. That's all about to change thanks to a new demonstration of its power recently posted on Twitter.

London-based developer Andrew Hart used ARKit with Apple's CoreLocation to create a version of Maps that puts guidance arrows and pushpins over the real world. And it's brilliant.

As the video shows, Hart types in a location in the normal Maps search interface and is then taken to a live street view with massive virtual arrows and paths pointing the way toward his destination.

Sure, we're all accustomed to using maps apps on our smartphones to find our way in the real world, but orientation and matching map data to the real world can sometimes be tricky. By slapping giant arrows over the real world in AR, usage of Maps would likely skyrocket simply from increased ease of use.

Hart plans to post the code on Github later this week. And while Apple has shown off its own AR demos in the past that have indicated such city AR overlay possibilities, by showing how it might actually be executed in Maps, Hart is helping to ramp up developer excitement around ARKit even more than before. ARKit-powered apps will start showing up for users this fall, when its native environment, iOS 11, is officially released as a non-beta download for all.
