We introduce the app with the T.V.S. Apache RR 310 & T.V.S. Apache RTR 200 4V, the flagship models from our stable.
This app will bridge the gap between a customer’s consideration and the decision of testing or purchase. By using augmented reality to give a 360-degree experience of the product using audio-visual and textual formats.
We are sure that our potential and existing customers will find great value in this new service.”
The three available modes on the app perform specific functions to ensure an all-inclusive experience to the users.
The Place to explore method creates an augmented understanding of the actual vehicle by positioning. The virtual 3D model of it in the A.R. world.
The virtual vehicle can be placed on any horizontal flat surface, allowing the user to have a 360-degree view by moving around it. Or by performing swipe gestures to rotate it on the screen.
Users can zoom in and out of the model or move the camera closer to the surface for a more accurate and in-depth view.
The Scan a real bike mode, on the other hand, is a combination of real objects. And A.R. Users can scan an entire vehicle by holding the device in front of it.
Once detected, different features of the vehicle will automatically get highlighted by the pulsating hotspots on it. By tapping on them, users will get the x-ray vision of the functionality, and detailed explanation through audio-visual and textual format.
The 3D mode will be available for both A.R. & Non-AR supported devices. Non-AR supporting devices will have only the 3D mode functionality. Where users will be able to rotate the vehicle 360-degree along with zoom in and out functionality, to have a better visual experience.
To highlight the critical features of the motorcycle, users can click on the pulsating hotspot enable icon. Which will activate the key features on it, and provide audio-visual, and textual information.
This option will also offer a suitable background for an enhanced experience. Here, the user can experience an aerial view of the vehicle using the camera option.
