Uber iOS Augmented Reality Pickup Patent
The patent made everything clear. It shows everything you could possibly find in the new Uber’s AR reality pickup feature.
There will be a code, and to enter the AR walking experience, you need to tap on it. This code also has snippets that provide hints on AR orientation working. Currently, AR is available on iOS and above. When walking, you need to tilt the camera up, pan it, ready, set, and walk.
When you are outdoors, you will align arrows to find the driver and vehicle. However, make sure you are careful and alert of your surroundings. Also, to use this feature, it is important that you are outside and facing the street. You can also use GPS and hold on for the next instructions.
Uber patented an AR-assisted pickup feature in 2018. This feature helps the rider to meet through the AR control module. Also, it helps riders to find an available driver when searching for a vehicle. It basically directs the passenger via the camera app. This feature is being deployed soon.
However, it is unclear that the Augmented Reality assisted walking feature of Uber might debut. To date, there is no official announcement by the company. Other apps like Google Maps already offer AR walking directions that overlay directional arrows on the real-world view to be seen through the camera.
