[SNS 타임즈- San Jose] KDDI and Mawari are pleased to announce a Digital Human as a Service (DHaaS) that will debut in December 2021 leverages the ultra-low latencies enabled by AWS Wavelength.

 

This proof of concept features a multilingual, Digital-Human Guide who provides seamless indoor and outdoor wayfinding services in Ginza, Tokyo, all delivered with AWS Wavelength and the KDDI au 5G Network.

 

For example, users can experience easy navigation from the subway to a shopping mall, and upon entering, navigate to specific shops and find special offers. A video demonstrating the PoC is available at https://youtu.be/6oReBJ5h8qs

 

This proof of concept is facilitated by the combined strengths of each of the partners in this project:

 

Outdoor navigation capabilities of the system utilize Sturfee's Visual Positioning System (VPS) based on high-definition satellite imagery, while indoor navigation utilizes Immersal's VPS based on maps made with pre-scanned images of interior spaces. When moving from outdoors to indoors the system transitions smoothly providing an uninterrupted user experience.

 

Content delivery to mobile devices is powered by AWS Wavelength, KDDI’s au 5G network, and Mawari's proprietary XR Streaming CODEC that enables the highest content fidelity to be streamed to smartphones by substantially lowering the heavy processing requirements of real-time digital humans, reducing cost, data size and battery consumption while unlocking scalability.

 

The entire user experience is also augmented with virtual guidance signs and opens B2C options via advertisements and helpful information that can be placed precisely in both outdoor and indoor environments.

 

In addition, a demo of the Digital-Human Guide will be available in the AWS Marketplace2 in mid-December, showcasing Mawari’s patent-pending 3DXR content streaming platform for the Metaverse. This is the first of many services that will be running on Mawari’s 3DXR content streaming platform, and the partners anticipate 3rd party deployments of these capabilities globally in locations spanning sports facilities, universities, hospitals, tourist destinations, museums and educational centres.

 

Mawari quote Our team is very proud to be part of this collaboration between leading-edge partners. Over the past 3 years Mawari has worked closely with KDDI - one of the most visionary companies in Japan - to release award-winning AR streaming, consumer facing installations across the arts, advertising and retail sectors. These projects have been instrumental in developing and delivering the right technical and aesthetic capabilities to develop and deliver our CODEC and platform contributions to this project.”
