6D.ai is building AR tech that crowdsources a 3D mesh of the world

6D.ai, a young startup emerging from Oxford University’s Active Vision Lab, is aiming to use smartphone cameras to build a cloud-based, crowdsourced three-dimensional map of the world that will let app developers expand their sights and let users gather some actual utility from phone-based ARĀ built on top of Apple’s ARKit and Google’s ARCore platforms.
