eNewsChannels: Augmented Reality

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Civic Resource Group International (CRGI) today announced the worldwide release of CivicAR(TM) – the first Mobile Augmented Reality (AR) solution for the public sector. The new product will enable governments and public sector agencies to deliver information and services directly to citizens and communities in a highly contextual and easy to use mobile environment.

CRGI developed CivicAR(TM) using patented technology with the goal of making Augmented Reality applicable for practical, business-specific uses in the civic sector. The robust CivicAR(TM) platform includes advanced Visual Search allowing users to easily scan city assets (bus stops, subway stations, restaurants, signs, trees, etc.) with their mobile devices for digital information. The Virtual Teleportation feature enables citizens/visitors to explore points of interests, facilities and distant locations with 360-degree views, all remotely.

The Directional Search feature allows users to learn about what’s around them simply by pointing their mobile device, and integrated localization/geolocation features map users and content precisely within their environment, providing valuable user analytics.

CRGI is making Augmented Reality – only recently considered “futuristic” – directly relevant and applicable in virtually any Smart Sector verticals such as government services, transportation, tourism, economic development, environment, utilities, healthcare and education among others.

“I’ll be the first one to admit that the public sector, which includes government, insurance agencies, travel, tourism, healthcare and education was not the first place I looked for early adoption of augmented reality solutions,” observed Matt Margolis, Chief Analyst of Wall Street Forensics after having researched the Company and its competition.

“CRGI is helping advance the public sector well into the future and on the forefront of the digital age. AR for the public sector will connect residents, businesses and officials. Have you ever been riding on a bike path and seen a down tree? With AR solutions you could take a picture of the down tree and instantly let town officials know where a tree has fallen along with providing crucial information to address the issue,” concluded Mr. Margolis

Civic Resource Group International is one of the world’s leading providers of digital government solutions. The Company pioneered CivicConnect(TM), its first-of-a-kind Mobile/Cloud/Data platform. Since 2000, CRGI has been “Fulfilling the Promise of Technology(TM)” for clients in the broad public sector, helping them to harness digital advances to connect with their audiences. CRGI is a new breed of Company, innovating solutions that support Sustainable Communities, Efficient Public Services, Engaged Citizens and Better Quality of Life.
