ABOUT THIS PROJECT

UJ AR is an application that's created by a group of 7 students who are studying at the University of Johannesburg (APB Campus). The name of the group is known as Bit-by-Bit. As part of the students year project where groups were allowed to identify any stakeholder that needs a digital solution, the Bit-by-Bit group identified this 4IR- related app and decided to approach the faculty and develop this fun AR experience for their campus and its students.

The UJ AR experience is in development for the Auckland Park Bunting Campus.
