Azure Spatial Anchors realizes what some in the industry call the AR Cloud. Large-scale, multi-user, and cross-platform shared experiences with persisted virtual objects. Azure Spatial Anchors does not just work with the HoloLens but also mobile AR platforms like iOS ARKit and Android ARCore. Scenarios include not only wayfinding and shared experiences across different devices but also large-scale, persisted mappings beyond the direct sensor view of the devices.

In this session Rene Schulte will explain why Cloud Spatial Anchors is the next sensation and why Azure Spatial Anchors is a key technology with many enterprise and consumer use cases, he will further discuss how it works and explain how to implement a cross-platform AR app with Azure Spatial Anchors show it with a HoloLens 2.
