What is augmented reality

  1. 1. Augmented Reality for Industrial Design a study of ways industrial designers can benefit from available AR applications Başak Topal MSc student @ METU ID basaktpl@gmail.com
  2. 2. Aim of this study General aim of my thesis study is to evaluate AR technologies to support industrial design practices. This way, I will be able to propose how existing AR technologies can supplement the design process in different stages. AR applications have become very easy to access, and currently there are lots of applications that can run even on computers, tablets and smartphones to display 3D models, animation, sound, 2D visuals, and text. The potential of this technology should be explored in a design education setting. Therefore, I will give you brief information about augmented reality and its application areas to inspire you about enriching your industrial design process. After this presentation, I will kindly ask you to look back on your final project in ID535 course and think about how augmented reality could be implemented.
  3. 3. What is AR? • Augmented reality technologies are a way of embedding computer-generated information into physical environments with the aim of enhancing human perception (Krevelen, Poelman, 2010).
  4. 4. Types of information that can be augmented into real environments • • • • • • Video Images Sound Text Interactivity 3D Models
  5. 5. Interesting Application Areas Please keep in mind when looking at these examples to apply the technology to a design process.

  20. 20. Interview Questions • • • • • • Can you choose one (or a collection) of your past design project(s) and think about where you would have benefited from using a range of Augmented Reality applications, e.g. to enhance the presentation of ideas, adding interactive content, improve presentation, etc. Please give specific examples to describe the ways that AR could have supplemented the design process and enriched the output (You can describe by making use of sketches, annotations etc.) What stages of your chosen design projects do you think would have benefited most from AR applications? What kinds of design activities might you have accomplished with Augmented Reality technologies if at the time you had access to the whole range of hardware and/or software and solutions? In future product design projects, what difficulties do you think you might face when using Augmented Reality applications? (If you have already used any AR applications, please also reflect on your previous experiences.) Would you be interested in exploring the possibilities of Augmented Reality technologies in a future design project? (Please elaborate on your answers)
