LOS ANGELES, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Civic Resource Group Int'l (CRGI) today announced the worldwide release of CivicAR™ - the first Mobile Augmented Reality (AR) solution for the public sector. The new product enables government/public sector to deliver information and services directly to citizens/communities in a highly contextual, easy-to-use mobile environment.
CRGI developed CivicAR™ using patented technology aiming at making AR applicable for practical/business-specific uses in the civic sector. The CivicAR™ platform includes advanced Visual Search allowing users to scan city assets (bus stops, restaurants, trees, etc.) with mobile-devices for digital-information. The Virtual-Teleportation feature enables citizens/visitors to remotely explore points of interests, facilities, distant locations with 360-views. 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 and content precisely within their environment, providing user analytics.
CRGI is making Augmented Reality--only recently considered "futuristic" -- directly relevant/applicable in any Smart Sector verticals: government services, transportation, tourism, economic development, environment, utilities, healthcare, education among others.
"I'll be the first one to admit that the public sector, which includes government, insurance agencies, travel, tourism, healthcare… was not the first place I looked for early adoption of augmented reality solutions," observed Matt Margolis, Chief Analyst, Wall Street Forensics, after having researched the Company and 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, 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
