A new series of app updates to RelayCars powered by EVOX Images provides an improved vehicle research experience with augmented reality technology, according to the company.
RelayCars, which describes itself as a virtual and augmented reality experience that can help users research and find their new car, announced various new upgraded AR features. For one of those, RelayCars has launched 20 new vehicles. Those include trucks, SUVs and sedans. And those vehicles are from brands that include Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Ford, Lexus, Maserati, Mercedes, Nissan, Toyota, and others.
This year, as the RelayCars AR experience grows, the company said it will roll out dozens of new vehicles. RelayCars describes itself as a virtual reality suite of apps, and those apps allow enterprise and general consumer users to use their smartphone, tablet, web or VR headset to explore the interior and exterior of thousands of different vehicles.
User interface redesign for increased functionality and ease of use is another new upgraded AR feature. The company said that with the feature, users can be notified when the car scales to 100%. RelayCars also said car scaling creates size-accurate representations and comparisons of the vehicles. Those comparisons and representations can be side-by-side to another AR vehicle, or in a real-life setting, placed next to a vehicle.
A new button to enter the vehicle that the company said provides quicker access and better views of the vehicle’s interior is another new upgraded AR feature, and another is a new share option for users to share vehicles through social media or e-mail.
“Every RelayCars app update we present is developed with the car shopper and their experience in mind,” EVOX Images chief operating officer Gina Callari said in a news release. “As the use of AR continues to grow, our newest upgrade is intended to present a more seamless way for users to find their future car through realistic technology.”
Users can now access RelayCars AR via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
RelayCars also said that in addition to AR, its virtual reality application has seen more than 1.2 million downloads. Users can access the application for free on iOS, Android, Oculus Go, Google Daydream, Samsung Gear VR, and Microsoft MR.
