Solving the vergence-accommodation conflict – the mismatch between perceived and focal distances for stereoscopic 3D displays – represents a critical hurdle to overcome for augmented reality (AR). Overcoming this would smooth interactions with virtual content, blurring the line between the simulated and the real, yet the industry has yet to settle on an approach.
In this presentation, IDTechEx outlines the range of display and optical systems proposed to solve the vergence-accommodation conflict, weighing up technological suitability and market forces to suggest likely candidates for wide deployment. Technologies including retinal projection, holographic and light field displays, and focus-tunable lenses are detailed and benchmarked on promotion of social acceptability, manufacturing feasibility and other factors. Alongside assessment of industry forces, this leads to the presentation of adoption roadmaps, plotting a path for integration into immersive consumer AR devices.

Dispelix develops and delivers lightweight, high-performance see-through waveguide combiners that are used as transparent displays in extended reality (XR) devices. Our full-color near-eye displays encompass all dimensions of XR comfort - social, wearable, and visual alike – in a simple eyeglass-lens form. Rich and pleasant XR experience calls for seamless merger of display and light engine technologies. In her presentation, Dispelix Vice President Pia Harju discusses how advanced design contributes to XR comfort and same time helps draw full potential from the light engine and display. We will showcase how built-in mechanical and optical compatibility fuse esthetic and functional aspects of design, paving the way for mind-altering XR eyewear experience.
Testing optical performance of components and the image quality of a completed XR headset is an important but not well-known part of the product development and mass production cycle - in fact, today's headsets would likely not be existing without it.
In this presentation, we will give an overview of the various steps in the production process where optical testing comes into play and discuss new developments like active alignment technology where we make use of real-time test data to assemble XR modules for best image quality.
Finally, we describe a new generation of test equipment that uses custom high-end optics specially tailored to XR that integrates both "big" and "small" picture-scale image quality test capabilities in one instrument, bringing test technology to the next level to support tomorrow's high-resolution XR headsets.
The ability to effectively and efficiently interact with and understand indoor spaces creates opportunities and significantly benefits industries that rely on indoor navigation, such as retail, hospitality and healthcare. Aryve is an advanced solution from svarmony that provides users with an innovative approach to the challenges of indoor navigation. Unlike traditional navigation methods such as GPS, aryve integrates state-of-the-art Visual Positioning Systems (VPS) that enable precise indoor positioning and orientation.
In his presentation, Sascha Kiener, CEO of svarmony, will go into detail about the critical technology behind aryve and the opportunities it creates to bring about change in various industries. By seamlessly connecting the physical and digital worlds, aryve offers a new “navigation experience.” From assisting visitors in large shopping malls to improving patient navigation in complex hospital structures, the tool demonstrates a wide range of applications.
As adoption of the technology increases, companies have the opportunity to differentiate themselves from their competitors by providing AR in-vehicle navigation. In addition, new revenue streams can emerge through partnerships, data monetization and personalized advertising.
The presentation highlights the potential of aryve and what benefits it provides to those who adopt the technology. Through the use of VPS systems and augmented reality, indoor navigation is on the verge of a significant redesign that promises improved user experiences and new business opportunities across various industries.
