Shopping Mall AR App

Defining The Problem

We have an itch to do deep research about the problem.
  • The crux of the problem lies in the mind and priority deviation, leading us to stray from our intended shopping goals.
  • Despite having specific priorities and a clear idea of what we intend to purchase, we often end up buying something entirely different.
  • The abundance of distractions, tempting offers, and enticing discounts within the shopping environment contribute to our confusion and make us lose focus on our original intentions.

Understanding The Need

Our versatile portfolio makes this easy for us.
  • The primary objective is to develop an augmented reality (AR) mobile application.
  • The purpose of the app is to assist users in locating their desired products within the entire shopping mall.
  • The app will leverage the mobile camera to provide an enhanced shopping experience.
  • By utilizing AR technology, users will be able to scan their surroundings and receive real-time information about the product’s location.
  • The app will employ advanced algorithms to accurately identify and guide users to the specific area or store where their desired product is available.

The Journey

  • Client Briefing 1


    The blueprint of the shopping mall was studied as the mall was huge in size, including the number of floors, the layout of the mall and the number of shops on each floor.

  • Document of scope 2


    SLAM (Simultaneous Localization & Mapping) technology was then incorporated to update the shopping mall map and simultaneously track user’s location within it.

  • Wireframe development 3

    Google Places API

    Google Places API was also used for each shop’s data, which, as per the client’s requirement, needed to be entered manually by the admin.

  • Wearable Device App 4


    AR tool kit, an open-source augmented reality SDK was used to develop cross-platform AR applications.

  • System Testing 5

    Testing and Quality Assurance

    This step ensures that the application functions as intended and provides a seamless user experience.

The fight was tough but so fun to crack!

To make the outcome worthy, the first factor we needed to ensure in the app was Accuracy.
  • Since all the shops in the shopping mall were very close, and the client required us to show in-depth data for each of them, we had to ensure complete precision throughout.
  • We achieved this precision by obtaining shopping mall blueprints and using the SLAM technology.
  • The deadlines were tight, but that didn’t budge us from delivering on time, all thanks to AR/VR experts on board.
