Virtual Reality devices have for several years now been in the spotlight in the consumer market, focusing on gaming and entertainment use cases. Much effort has been made to increase the perceived video resolution and reduce sensor latency in order to create a desirable experience with less risk of motion sickness. In parallel, Augmented Reality has been pressing forward in an attempt to improve lifestyle and business interactions.
Technology has changed so rapidly in the past decade and we are seeing new applications for mobile computing in various fields. With vast progress being made in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) algorithms, applications that previously involved manual labor are now being automated. These technologies are now constantly being used to solve some of the most common problems in our day to day lives.
As the price for processing power in embedded devices has dropped, the market has adapted to take advantage of a new tier of performance, features, and novel capabilities that have become both affordable and available. With the advent of low-cost embedded chipsets like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon series, capable of cinema-quality 4K graphics, 802.11ac MU-MIMO and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity, and built-in support for cloud connectivity, there has been a marked increase in the features and capabilities included in devices like digital signage displays and wireless presentation devices that have not previously provided advanced cloud connectivity.
