For approved research partners, Meta offers a kit that includes Project Aria glasses and SDK, so that researchers can conduct independent studies and help shape the future of AR.
A powerful suite of tools, services and hardware
The Project Aria program is not just about glasses.
Partners are provided with Aria glasses to collect data required for their research.
A powerful tool which provides the means to interface directly with Project Aria glasses.
Machine perception services provide researchers additional annotations and insights based on collected data.
Enhanced insights with machine perception services
Approved research partners have access to a variety of cloud-based services provided by Meta, such as 6DoF trajectory and 3D eye-gaze estimation.
These ‘machine perception services’ enable researchers to harness algorithms and pipelines used internally by Reality Labs Research, allowing partners to focus their energy on what matters most for their research.
A versatile toolkit for interfacing with Aria glasses
In addition to the open-source Project Aria Tools which enable researchers to work with Aria data, approved Aria research partners have access to a client SDK to enable real-time interaction between Aria and a secondary device such as a PC or phone.
This SDK exposes device functionality, such as sensor streaming, sequence management, and capture configuration, allowing Aria glasses to be tailored to the needs of any given research project.
