We told you many helpful information about Vuforia. However, no one hear about its developers. Its American company Qualcomm.
Company was found in 1985 and its main task is searching and making the easiest ways of wireless connection. Nevertheless, for the first time they worked with production of mobile phones, and later sold this option to the Japanese company in 2000.
The main feature of the company is their CPUs. Starting from 2000s, when mobile phones were getting popular, Vuforia developers were building CPUs on the core Scorpion. Every next processor was stronger than previous, and soon specialists started testing them on phones and communicators. The result was good so company started getting good income.
However, even though the great potential of working, the latest processor couldn`t conquer with the giants of technical progress – Nvidia GeForce and Intel. Nevertheless, with the appearance of the soft Android the number of abilities became bigger. New processors were working better with Android, so they ousted all competitors from the store and became the most popular in that time.
Now CPUs are changing their core from Scorpion to Krait. It will give the ability of upgrading the frequency of processor. It also means that new processors will have one, two and four cores. For today Qualcomm have created hundreds of processors for many different smartphones such as HTC, Motorola, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Sony Ericsson, LG Optimus, Nexus, Nokia Lumia and many other.
Company also has official free soft named QPST (Qualcomm Product Support Tool) for programming and diagnostic an equipment based on Qualcomm`s CPUs.
As we see, Vuforia developers are specialized on the other sphere of programming, so this system is something unusual for them. It seems that beta testing showed good results and gave an opportunity to develop this system.
Today company focused on developing the wireless connection to make society closer to each other. In the period of IT everyone need to be in contact with friends and family. Qualcomm is trying to make people`s life easier, but not to turn it into routine. We mustn`t give the machines an ability to control us.
Vuforia developers have many abilities and have deep potential in progress.
