ThingWorx® Studio Brings Highly Immersive AR Interactions to the Industrial Enterprise

  • With support for Vuforia 7, ThingWorx Studio will make use of Vuforia Ground Plane, a new capability for placing content on the ground, floor or tabletop.
  • Because Ground Plane leverages ARKit and ARCore through a technology known as Vuforia Fusion, ThingWorx Studio will enable users to create robust and reliable AR experiences across a broader range of industrial environments.
  • PTC is offering industrial enterprises a preview of Model Targets and ARKit support within ThingWorx Studio and ThingWorx View as a first step toward broader device and OS coverage.
  • Experiences authored in ThingWorx Studio are accessed via ThingWorx View, a single, enterprise-wide viewer application that delivers rich, 3D user experiences for smart phones, tablets and wearable devices.
  • In addition to the new Model Targets and Ground Plane functionality to be incorporated, ThingWorx Studio and ThingWorx View will soon incorporate remote presence capabilities that provide greater efficiency for a variety of mission-critical industrial use cases.

PTC today announced its ThingWorx® Studio Augmented Reality (AR) technology will be updated with Vuforia® 7 software, bringing with it major advancements in the ability to attach digital content to everyday objects and surfaces, as well as support for Apple’s ARKit and Google’s ARCore.

ThingWorx Studio is a rapid AR authoring environment that enables industrial stakeholders to quickly create and share scalable augmented reality experiences without writing any code. The easy reuse of existing 3D geometries and animated sequences with ThingWorx Studio enables users to reduce the cost and complexity of content creation for compelling AR experiences. Model Targets, available in the upcoming Vuforia 7 release and supported by ThingWorx Studio, will enable the recognition and tracking of objects based on shape from pre-existing 3D models, and will not require a marker. This high-fidelity object recognition provides more accurate positioning so 3D content can be aligned with greater precision for use cases where step-by-step instructions and product data are overlaid onto the physical product.
