One of the problems that VR and AR head display producers have to face is to know the location of the head display in the environment.this is particularly important for augmented reality applications, as viewing systems that overlay digital objects on real-world scenes must ensure that objects are positioned absolutely correctly in the user's field of view. Headscapes have a variety of ways to track their location, including accelerometers and cameras pointing to the environment to track nearby objects.

However, in the case of a large number of people using a head-mounted vision system, or multiple currently observable ARKit applicationsiPhone User, each device usually handles its own coordinate tracking system. Equipment in the process of use will not generally share coordinates, generally work independently of each other.

the apple Glass smart glasses or apple-produced VR or AR headsets can use other hardware to determine its location and motion 3d space by sharing data from the local environment. An award by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday was

The idea originally came from an electronic device

A second device can use this data as a starting point for the user's AR experience without drawing the area itself in advance. The second device can still collect its own data and update the set of features it receives, while passing the data back to the first device, telling it the updated location and any other relevant data. Back and forth handover of data can allow the creation of other functions, such as the first device providing the latest 3 maps of an area based on D new location of the second device.

Although the system has obvious applications in AR and VR, such as guiding tourists to visit museums, there are other ways to use this idea, which is not necessarily in a larger system. From the way the patent is described, it may help enhance Apple glass's rumored smart glasses in another way.

since data including 3 D map information is transmitted between devices, it may be generated by iPhone or other devices and then passed to the Apple Glass itself. theoretically, this will reduce the amount of processing and sensors required on the Apple Glass to be manufactured in a less bulky, more attractive form.

Apple filed a large number of patent applications every week, but although the existence of the application indicates the areas of interest in Apple's R & D work, it does not guarantee the existence of some function in future products or services.
