Opportunities for Augmented Reality: 2013-2022 Report Featuring 30 Vendors to Watch in the AR Space

DUBLIN, Ireland, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Opportunities for Augmented Reality: 2013-2022" report to their offering.

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )

This new report provides a comprehensive and granular ten-year forecast for revenue generation - from hardware, software and advertising services -- in the burgeoning Augmented Reality (AR) market. It also assesses the latest business models being put forward by leading edge AR firms and analyses existing AR applications to understand their success and their flaws.

In addition to forecasts and market analysis, this report contains strategic profiles of twenty-eight leading AR firms, with SmarTech's take on where they are headed and their likelihood for future success.

Giants such Apple, Google, HP and Microsoft see AR as both a way to boost their traditional businesses and as a gateway into new markets. At the same time, innovative AR start-ups are attracting funding for both platforms and AR-driven applications aimed at specific industry sectors such as retail, education or computer gaming. But AR opportunities are not in any way limited to software packages; AR will also drive demand for new types of hardware such as gesture control and especially head mounted displays.

Given the strong and immediate opportunity potential for AR, STM Publishing has created this report as a key strategic input for all senior executives planning AR product/market policies for their firms. This report will also be essential reading for investors who are looking to take equity positions in AR firms.

By reading this report, software firms will gain insight from our assessments of the past successes and failures of AR firms as well as our projections of how these companies will seek to evolve their business models over the next few years. Our roadmaps for the major AR platforms will also serve as an important input for product planning at all firms involved in the industry.

R&D organizations developing novel sensors, input technology and other component level products will be able to quantify the addressable markets for their AR-related technology and how these markets will develop over the next decade. Advertising agencies and retailers will be able to quantify the advertising potential of AR promotional activity and see what has worked in the AR advertising space to date. Investors will gain a better understanding of how AR ventures are being financed and what the expected returns are likely to be.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

What if, during a snow emergency, an on-the-ground sensor could automatically trigger a relevant emergency notification related to snowfall and road impact. And then, after it’s triggered, that notification is delivered intelligently to individuals based on an extensive set of rules designed to alert the most available and capable responders. This “what if” question about “smart highways” is short-sighted. We are already there, and we are only getting started. While mainstream attention is paid to machine-to-machine communications, new technologies are being developed to make these communica...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
