Transcript of "Review On The Effective Use Of Augmented Reality Last"

  1. 1. P. H. Yannakopoulos, A.A. Fotopoulos, I.A. Konidas, A. I. Smyrnakis, A. H. Talavari, Ch. N. Tasiopoulos REVIEW ON THE EFFECTIVE USE OF AUGMENTED REALITY TO PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL SKILLS International Scientific Conference eRA-6 2011
  2. 2. <ul><li>We have live view of real world environment, in which details are augmented by a PC using sensor inputs. Not visual recreation of an environment that is not real, as Virtual Reality does. </li></ul><ul><li>Augmented Reality supplements real world in stead of completely re-creating it like Virtual Reality does. </li></ul>[A Survey of Augmented Reality, Ronald T. Azuma, 1997]
  3. 3. <ul><li>Augmented Reality is when a PC is used as tool to make a task easier for a human to perform. Visual objects include more information than a human can detect with his senses. </li></ul><ul><li>Physiotherapists and doctors agree that Augmented Reality helps patients’ rehabilitation. </li></ul>Fig.: http://www.extratech.gr [A Survey of Augmented Reality, Ronald T. Azuma, 1997]
  4. 4. [Fig. 1, Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  5. 5. <ul><li>A non-immersive recreational and educational augmented reality application, dedicated in aiding disabled pupils by allowing them to handle virtual objects in a simple and intuitive way. </li></ul><ul><li>Four virtual fruits are placed randomly on the left page of the book. Pupils are asked to place the identical virtual fruits into the same position on the right page. </li></ul>[Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  6. 6. <ul><li>After finishing pairing, the program uses virtual cues ( blue and red circles) to help the kid recognise any mistakes that might have done. </li></ul><ul><li>There are also auditory cues in order to give more help to the kids. </li></ul>[Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  7. 7. <ul><li>For the application’s development, Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 and OpenGL Library were used. </li></ul><ul><li>A webcam was used for pattern recognition. </li></ul><ul><li>3D models built with 3DStudioMax. </li></ul>[Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  8. 8. <ul><li>The research team end up with the conclusion that the application has many pedagogical purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>It is easy for teachers or parents to implement it at school or at home, respectively. </li></ul><ul><li>The application’s difficulty level can be adjusted to meet the demands from a wide range of ages. </li></ul>[Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  9. 9. <ul><li>A research team used Augmented Reality to cope with a 25-year-old woman’s cockroach phobia. Virtual cockroaches were displayed on the woman’s hands. After some sessions, her phobia for cockroaches has been eliminated. </li></ul>[Fig. 3, Computers in Human Behavior, Botella et. al., 2009] [Computers in Human Behavior, Botella et. al., 2009]
  10. 10. <ul><li>A camera attached at woman’s head-mounted display (HMD) enabled her to see the real world around her. </li></ul><ul><li>A relatively old fashioned computer added the virtual cockroaches that were designed using 3DStudio and exported in VRML format to the environment. </li></ul>[Treating Cockroach Phobia With Augmented Reality, Botella et. al., 2010] [Fig. 1, Treating Cockroach Phobia With Augmented Reality, Botella et. al., 2010]
  11. 11. <ul><li>Post-stroke therapy carried out in an enhanced environment, leads to faster rehabilitation. </li></ul><ul><li>The fact that Augmented Reality system automates some therapy procedures, allows therapist to supervise more patients simultaneously. </li></ul><ul><li>The patient can see his hand moving into a virtual environment, through a Head Mounted Display (HMD). </li></ul>[Evaluating the Post-Stroke Patients Progress Using an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation System, Alamri et. al., 2009]
  12. 12. <ul><li>The necessary equipment is the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A webcam </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A head mounted display (HMD) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A data glove </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The decision support engine </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The webcam captures the real environment. </li></ul><ul><li>The head mounted display renders the processed scene back to the patient. </li></ul>[Evaluating the Post-Stroke Patients Progress Using an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation System, Alamri et. al., 2009]
  13. 13. <ul><li>The first exercise asks the patient to move a mug numerous times, back and forth a shelf. </li></ul><ul><li>The patient must follow the path provided by the PC. </li></ul><ul><li>The PC program fills randomly the shelf with virtual objects. </li></ul>[Evaluating the Post-Stroke Patients Progress Using an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation System, Alamri et. al., 2009]
  14. 14. <ul><li>In the second exercise, the patient has to move a real object into 3 dimensions, following a predefined plot. </li></ul><ul><li>The exercise reviews the patient’s ability to keep the hand as steady as possible. </li></ul>[Evaluating the Post-Stroke Patients Progress Using an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation System, Alamri et. al., 2009]
  15. 15. <ul><li>Using ultrasonic sensors to generate a 3-D baby’s model. </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to examine the fetus and plan a Caesarean in advance with high accuracy and completely harmless. </li></ul>Fig. 2, Virtual fetus inside womb of pregnant patient. [A Survey of Augmented Reality, Ronald T. Azuma, 1997]
  16. 16. <ul><li>Using Augmented Reality to help guide the needle during a breast tumor biopsy. </li></ul><ul><li>More accurate results </li></ul><ul><li>Less error chances </li></ul>[A Survey of Augmented Reality, Ronald T. Azuma, 1997] Fig. 3, Mockup of breast tumor biopsy.
  17. 17. <ul><li>Augmented reality can be used to forestall traffic accidents. Road-line highlighting and closing car notification are only some examples. </li></ul><ul><li>For many years Augmented Reality is used at football courts to help referees with their decisions. </li></ul>Photos: motorauthority.com augmented.org
  18. 18. <ul><li>People with special skills can be extremely assisted in their everyday life while Augmented Reality is able to ease their pain. </li></ul><ul><li>New elements and devices enable and improve clinical utility of evidence-based treatments. </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile devices interventions can assist with management of chronic diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>Augmented Reality can be used for improving physical activity & kinesiology. </li></ul>[Evaluating the Post-Stroke Patients Progress Using an Augmented Reality Rehabilitation System, Alamri et. al., 2009]
  19. 19. <ul><li>Mental reaction in front of virtual entities of disabled children. </li></ul><ul><li>Improving children decision making through 2D & 3D plant entities. </li></ul><ul><li>Autistic & trisomic children could express positive emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>New teaching methods can be developed with emphasis on disabled children using more playful ways. </li></ul>[Augmented Reality for Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disabled Children: A Preliminary Study, Richard et. al., 2007]
  20. 20. <ul><li>Children treatment for emotional problems using cognitive behavior therapy principles & augmented reality. </li></ul><ul><li>Augmented Reality is a really promising scientific field that involves numerous specialties. </li></ul><ul><li>Further Research & Development in Augmented Reality is imperative. </li></ul>[A Survey of Augmented Reality, Ronald T. Azuma, 1997]
