Low-code and No-code AR Solution Benchmarking

To submit a proposal for this research, please follow the guidance and complete the form below.


In response to the increasing demand for customized Augmented Reality (AR) experiences, many companies are exploring alternatives to traditional software engineering approaches. While outsourcing AR development poses challenges, low-code and no-code AR content authoring platforms offer viable solutions. These platforms empower non-technical subject-matter experts to create AR experiences without extensive programming knowledge, offering diverse features and deployment options.

Executive Summary: In order to assist subject matter experts who seek to author and publish AR experiences without learning how to do software engineering with a game engine, this project aims to assess and compare the features, pricing, and scope of at least four leading low-code and no-code AR content authoring platforms tailored for enterprise applications. With the results of this project, AR for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) members will have comprehensive insights and a new methodology for evaluating future low-code and low-code AR solutions to facilitate informed decision-making.
