Augmented Reality Application Avalinn AR
Murals that are painted on the end walls of the garages at the Pollinator Highway hide a virtual information layer, which can be seen through a specially developed augmented reality application Avalinn AR. There are a total of 4 wall paintings: "Species Richness", "Sustainable Mobility", "Reuse of Garages" and "Leisure Activities".
The purpose of the smart app is to enable the citizens of Tallinn to experience the landscape architecture solution of the Pollinator Highway via augmented reality. This is the first time in Estonia that a smart application has been created for this purpose.
By pointing your smart device at a mural, the visions of the Pollinator Highway come to life. One can get acquainted with the insect and plant species in the area, get a glimpse of the future open-air activities and also get an overview where the movement corridors for cyclists and a prospective tramline is planned.
Download Avalinn AR from the App Store or Google Play and come and discover the urban space of the future!
