Vuforia Engine enhances the capability of HoloLens by allowing you to connect AR experiences to specific images and objects in the environment. You can use this capability to overlay step by step instructions on top of machinery or to add digital features to a physical product.
Enterprise developers can use VuMarks to uniquely identify each piece of machinery on a factory floor, right down to the serial number. Additionally, VuMarks can be scaled into the billions and designed to look just like a company logo. Based on the CAD data of your product or machinery the Hololens can detect these 3D objects robustly in the environment using Vuforia Model Targets technology. Augmented overlays can be authored directly against the CAD model so that your field workers see them right where you placed them.
Existing Vuforia Engine apps built for phones and tablets can be configured in Unity to run on HoloLens. You can even use Vuforia Engine to take your new HoloLens app to Windows 10 tablets such as the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.
