About XTEND

XTEND produces and distributes state of the art XR (Extended Reality) for healthcare. We focus on designing, implementing, and maintaining next generation location-based gamification what will reduce patient stress and anxiety, improve facility operations and workflows, and have profoundly positive impacts on the confidence and well-being of patients and visitors. The past years there has been an bigger focus in Norway on facilitating for children and young adults in hospitals.

High-level functionality

For our AR development we use the AR Foundation package to add high-level functionality to augmented reality and it allows us to work in a multi-platform way.This allows us to develop our app once, then deploy it across multiple mobile and wearable AR devices. It includes core features from each platform, as well as unique Unity features that include photorealistic rendering, physics, device optimizations, and more.

industry-leading development

Unity’s real-time 3D development platform empowers us with all we need to create, operate, and monetize.This industry-leading development platform gives our developers the power to create games and applications that deliver on the promise of XR: apps that react to, and live in, the real world.
 
As we write software for XR, we need to develop systems that support continually changing requirements due to the pace at which innovation is happening.

AR Foundation supports the following concepts:

  • World tracking: track the device's position and orientation in physical space.
  • Plane detection: detect horizontal and vertical surfaces.
  • Point clouds, also known as feature points.
  • Reference points: an arbitrary position and orientation that the device tracks.
  • Light estimation: estimates for average color temperature and brightness in physical space.
  • Environment probes: a means for generating a cube map to represent a particular area of the physical environment.
  • Face tracking: detect and track human faces.
  • Image tracking: detect and track 2D images.
  • Object tracking: detect 3D objects.
