ARCore does not need special sensors to function, and works with current smartphone hardware and cameras, with machine learning taking care of the workload for the most part. Placing these freely in a three-dimensional space within the viewfinder seems to work surprisingly well already. The platform focuses on three things: motion tracking , environmental understanding , and light estimation , and drops the requirement of specialized hardware.
The trio, who arrived at the station in July, contributed to hundreds of scientific experiments aboard the ISS and performed several spacewalks. The full fledged NASA training for the astronauts would be held at the Johnson center for two years.
