At It-Jim, we develop custom solutions that do the job directly on the device to achieve zero latency, maximum security, and cost-effectiveness. We optimize the accuracy and performance tradeoff, leveraging the available ML models and CoreML framework while developing custom algorithms in C++ when needed.

iPhone as a Navigation Sensor

The iPhone’s sensors (cameras, LiDAR, accelerometer and gyroscope) offer a range of possibilities for location retrieval and navigation, making it a versatile tool for GPS-denied environments such as multi-level parking, business centers and exhibitions. What’s more, you can add an AR layer and transform your iPhone into a portal to the digital world that erases the borders between real and virtual environments.

Our team at It-Jim can leverage the following solutions for visual localization and tracking, including:

  • Visual SLAM and VPS
  • ARKit and custom user localization
  • Incorporation of fiducial objects, such as QR codes, images, or 3D objects, as anchors
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for indoor navigation
  • Multi-sensor setup for distributed areas (SLAM+BLE)

All above is possible with a core functionality implemented on your iPhone. This allows for efficient and cost-effective business applications without the need for additional hardware.

iOS Development for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing

Get ready to be amazed by what your iPhone camera and our AI expertise can do! With the help of the It-Jim team, your device can be transformed into a powerful tool for pattern recognition and image processing. Here are just a few examples of what your iPhone can be transformed into:
