Augmented Reality is a field
of computer research which
deals with combination of
reality with the computer
The basic idea of augmented
reality is to superimpose
graphics, audio and other
sensory enhancements over a
real world environment in real
Augmented-reality displays will
graphics onto the real world.
An augmented reality system generates a
composite view for the user. It is a combination
of the real scene viewed by the user and a virtual
scene generated by the computer that augments
the scene with additional information.
Augmented Reality(AR) is a combination of three
factors .These are :
Real and virtual world.
Interaction in the real time.
COMPONENTS USED IN
Mobile computing power(High speed
Head mounted display will
enable us to view graphics and text
created by Augmented reality
A typical HMD has either one or
two small displays with lenses and
embedded in a helmet, eye-glasses
(also known as data glasses) or
visor. The display units are
miniaturized and may include CRT,
LED or OLED.
Head mounted display
It is used in order to track
user’s location with respect
to the surrounding. For this
two tracking system is used
The Hi ball Tracking System
uses an optical sensing
and LED-embedded ceiling
tiles to track movements over
a short range.
augmented reality systems to work mobile
computers are a good option.
computing can be accomplished with help
of wearable computers , which is the battery
powered computer system worn on the user’s
is designed for mobile & predominantly hand
free operations often incorporating head mounted
display & speech input.
Markers can be attached to a particular object that a person
is working on, and the augmented-reality system can draw
graphics on top of it, the system only has to know where the
user is in reference to the object that he or she is looking at.
Augmented reality displays could
also highlight troop movements,
and provide hidden place for them in
the nearby surrounding.
IN CELL PHONES
The primitive versions of augmented reality
are already here on some cell phones,
particularly in applications for
the iPhone and phones with the Android
operating system. Cell phone owners can
download an application called Layar.
LAYAR uses camera and GPS to gather
information about the surrounding area.
Layar then shows information about
restaurants or other sites in the area,
overlaying this information on the phone's
screen. You can even point the phone at a
building, and Layar will tell you if any
companies in that building are hiring, or it
might be able to find photos of the building
on Flickr or to locate its history on
An phone user displays the augmented reality
app Monocle, which combines the phone’s
camera view with tiny tags indicating the names,
distances and user ratings of nearby bars,
restaurants and more.

size of Augmented Reality(AR) systems is
yet another problem . It is very large, researchers
are working to make it smaller.
SCOPE IN THE FUTURE
Enhanced media applications ,like pseudo
holographic virtual screens, virtual surround
Replacement of cell phones: eye dialing, insertion
of information directly into environment.
You may learn things about the city you've lived in
for years just by pointing your AR-enabled phone
at a nearby park or building.
Augmented reality will further blur the line
between what's real and what's computer
generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel. It
has possibilities beyond our imagination and
perception. It will have huge applications in almost
