Immersal Oy, part of Hexagon and a metaverse technology provider, announced that its Visual Positioning Technology (VPS) is used to create AR experiences in and around Nokia Arena, in Tampere, Finland. The pilot application which is currently available for Nokia and its VIP visitors at Nokia Arena includes signs inside the arena, AR experiences like the stadium decorated with playing home teams’ logos, videos in AR and interactive AR experiences.
