No BLE Beacons.
Create precise and robust navigation without any on-site hardware installation and ongoing maintenance
ARway is disrupting the augmented reality wayfinding market with a no-code, no hardware no BLE beacon, spatial computing platform enabled by visual marker tracking. ARway can create precise and robust navigation without any on-site hardware installation and ongoing maintenance which represents a significant TAM opportunity for ARway, as the global indoor positioning and indoor navigation market is projected to reach $44 Billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 42.0% from 2018 to 2025, according to Allied Market Research.
While ARway is focusing revenue generation towards AR wayfinding, it is finding applications of its robust AR engine in additional markets that are opening up entirely new revenue opportunities. Announced earlier this week, ARway’s technology is now being used as part of the XR engine powering the music app: Encore. This application of the ARway platform opens up a substantial new market; providing AR spatial activations for the music industry.

ARway is disrupting the Augmented Reality Wayfinding market with a no-code, no beacon spatial computing platform enabled by visual marker tracking. Visitors can access a venue map by scanning a visual marker (e.g., QR code) with their smartphone and navigate to any Point of Interest (POI) by following an augmented path and step-by-step directions, while interacting with rich AR content and experiences. ARway only requires end-users to scan a QR code with their smartphone to activate.
The ARway Platform Includes:
Web Creator Platform
The Web-Based Creator Platform provides 'advanced' authoring capabilities compared to the mobile app, including the ability for creators to upload their own OBJ/GLB files, and create their own 3D objects. Placing content in a large area using only mobile app required the user to physically be in the specific location which was unscalable. The web studio allows the user to place and author content remotely and at scale.
With the ARway mobile app, anyone can spatially map their location within minutes using their smartphone, and populate it with interactive 3D content, augmented reality wayfinding, audio, text, images, and more. Nextech AR provides several pre-loaded 3D objects which creators can leverage to populate their metaverse.
The Software Development Kit contains code libraries and API information that allows developers to build their own white label & private label mobile apps on both iOs and Android leveraging ARway's technology and creator tools to build AR wayfinding and spatial experiences. Creators will be able to develop white label and private label apps and access ARway APIs to author maps using the Web Creator Portal. The SDK features the latest and greatest of the ARway mobile app.
