AR solution for retail store

Sales tool for retail stores consultants, which gives customers the opportunity to visualize the benefits of using Wi-FI repeaters with the help of augmented reality technology.

Context

The application allows demonstrating to the customer how to use Wi-Fi repeaters which increase the Internet coverage in their apartments.

Quick facts

Service: Proof of concept
Team: Project Manager, Developer, Tech Artist, Designer, QA
Timeframe: 153 hours (3D assets creation is not included)
Technologies: Unreal Engine 4, ARKit 2.0

Project overview

Our purpose of creating the Proof of concept of AR solution was to show how to implement new technologies into the retail business with a range of benefits leading to increased sales and also how to digitalize several work processes in the stores.

Proof of concept development included the following tasks:

  • Creation of a 3D environment
  • Animation of elements of the environment
  • Creation of a system of interaction in augmented reality between a user and different augmented reality objects
  • Programming of the waves effects and controllers
  • Realization of shaders
  • Application programming

Solution

It took Jasoren team three weeks to develop the Proof of concept. When the development process was completed, we performed user testing.

The team working on the project included: Project Manager, Developer, Tech Artist, Designer, and QA.

It was essential to collaborate closely with the client to meet all the requirements and show all the specific moments correctly.

Key features

Markerless augmented reality
To launch the application, the only thing you need is an Apple device (iPad or iPhone). Using ARKit 2.0 and working in a markless mode, this application allows salespersons to use any horizontal surface to visualize the way of working Wi-Fi repeaters for customers.

Possibility to chose the type of accommodation
In the application, clients are allowed to select the kind of housing which make them understand better the way how Wi-Fi repeater works depending on the type of a wall in the house and its size.

Detalization
Accurate visual demonstration of the environment. The possibility to see the coverage signal from Wi-Fi repeater and the objects that block the signal.

Result

During the user testing, which was conducted in several retail stores of the chain, the client noticed an increased amount of positive feedback from the sales staff. Also, the sales team was satisfied with the simple and convenient way to visualize the operation principle of Internet repeaters that undoubtedly made this application a suitable tool for selling these devices.
