Archived - Introduction to Autonomous Navigation for Augmented Reality

This article provides an introduction to autonomous navigation and its use in augmented reality applications, with a focus on agents that move and navigate. Autonomous agents are entities that act independently using artificial intelligence, which defines the operational parameters and rules by which the agent must abide. The agent responds dynamically in real time to its environment, so even a...

Code Sample: Parallel Processing with Direct3D* 12

The idea behind this project was to provide a demonstration of parallel processing in gaming with Direct3D 12. It expands upon the results from the paper "A Comparison of the Intel® Core™ i5 Processor and Intel® Core™ i7 Processor with Visualizations in OpenGL* and Oculus* VR" (see References section) and extends the code there to contain a Direct3D 12 renderer. It also re-implements the previous...

Code Sample: Custom Audio Editor Tool with Unreal Engine* for Sound Spatialization in VR

This Code Sample show you step-by-step on building a useful tool for VR devs using Unreal Engine that leverages the power of intel CPU’s. Unreal Engine has a powerful virtual reality editor option, but something they did not include is the ability to edit and place sounds while inside VR. It can be troublesome constantly having to restart the editor after adjusting a sound to test what it sounds...

Code Sample: Using Modern C++ Techniques to Enhance Multi-core Optimizations

This software example demonstrates how to use multi-core technologies to edit images. There are two parts to this project, a .NET Windows application front end written using C# and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and a C++ DLL which is responsible for the actual manipulation of the image.
