Shell Pearl GTL Augmented Reality

RenderHeads worked as technology partners with Imagination to create an innovative augmented reality installation for Shell to provide information about their new Pearl GTL plant. We worked closely with Imagination to realise their design and vision



Technical Details

The Shell Pearl GTL project was created using the Unity Pro development tool. We wrapped the ARToolKit library to create an augmented reality plugin for Unity, giving us marker tracked interaction. As well as the programming, on this project we were also commissioned to produce a stylised model of the Pearl GTL plant suitable for real-time rendering. We were given high-poly source models in CAD format and used Maya to create new model from scratch based on these. The entire project was completed remotely, with regular conference calls.
