Xiaomi AR has just been granted authorization for an interesting new technology that is based on AR (augmented reality). This new system is an AR-powered shopping navigation system that was just spotted in a patent.
The present application discloses a shopping navigation method, device, and system based on the augmented reality technology AR, which belongs to the field of intelligent navigation. The method includes: receiving a request for acquiring a navigation path of a target commodity sent by a terminal; acquiring location information of the terminal, and acquiring the location information of the target commodity, according to the location information of the terminal and the location information of the target commodity, generating the navigation route data of the target commodity; sending the navigation route data of the target commodity to the terminal.
This would be especially intuitive with augmented reality tech, which offers a layer of information on top of the real world. Picture yourself wearing AR-powered glasses while you’re looking for a particular smartphone. The Chinese tech giant’s Xiaomi AR shopping navigation system would help you locate the store in which the device is available and offer you waypoints as you find your way to the retailer. All in all, this is a system designed to make shopping more interactive and efficient.
Another very practical use of this technology might be in appraising products. For example, you enter a store that sells laptops, the technology might help list the specification of the laptops and its online pricing as well. Although, the patent does not hint of this feature in the patent, so take it with a pinch of salt. It is also unknown if Xiaomi is actually working on such a system or just covering the bases related to AR.
