It says Apple Maps on van, but IMO looks like LIDAR instruments maybe? Gathering data for self-driving efforts?

Promising... Huge opportunity.

The worst uncertainty for me as a freelancer in conflict isn’t that I won’t be able to pay my rent; it’s that no one will see the story, and then I will have failed to give a voice to the voiceless. So I have tried to share them where I can, and hopefully people can imagine some of the human tragedy and triumph playing out in Mosul.

Good (brief) comparison of Apple Google and Microsoft approaches to Augmented reality. There is merit in all three. 
Apple has recently announced the ARKit, a promising SDK for AR development, simple & easy to use. Apple has trimmed off all subjects bothering developers. ARKit is based on visual-inertial odometry and provides developers with motion tracking and plane detection, the two core functionalities for developing an AR application. Additionally, a sparse point cloud is generated by the way of motion tracking.

- Size of audience: ARKit > Tango > HoloLens
- Simplicity of hardware: ARKit > Tango > HoloLens
- Convenience in development: ARKit > Tango > HoloLens
- Potential for application: HoloLens > Tango > ARKit
- Motion tracking accuracy: HoloLens > Tango > ARKit
- Motion tracking speed: ARKit > HoloLens > Tango
- Point cloud density: Tango > HoloLens > ARKit.

The weakness of ARKit originates from the minimal hardware requirement for visual-inertial odometry, i.e. a plain single moving camera. Eventhough users need not to be aware of, in order to increase the accuracy of motion tracking, a BW fish-eye camera as with Tango or multiple cameras as with HoloLens are necessary.
