AUGMENTED REALITY Presented By, Vinod Kumar V H
Introduction• Augmented Reality is different from Virtual Reality.• Augmented Reality supplements reality, rather than replacing it.• It is like a “Middle Ground” between Virtual Environment and Real Environment.
What is AR ?It has the following three characteristics.• Combines real and virtual.• Interactive in real time.• Registered in 3d.
ImplementationHardware Requirements for AR include :• Display• Tracking• Input Devices• Computer
ImplementationSoftware:• Uses optical or video technologies to accomplish augmentation.• Merges real world images and virtual 3d images.• Image Registration
Applications1. Medical2. Manufacturing and Repair3. Annotation and Visualization4. Robot Path Planning5. Entertainment6. Military and emergency services7. Collaborations
Applications : Medical and Design Augmented view of River Surgeon X-ray vision: Wear in Sunderland, Minimally-invasive brain Newcastle (U.K.) with a surgery planned footbridge (AI Lab, MIT) (UK)
Applications : EntertainmentReal-time facial expression recognition and animation of the clone’s face (MIRALab, University of Geneva)
Augmented Reality Category Augmented Reality using the iPhone
Disadvantages:-•Specific hardware and special programs arerequired.•The cost of the software and equipment is high.•The capture system may have specificrequirements for the space it is operated in.
Conclusion• AR is relatively new field and far behind VR in maturity.• AR is a costly development in technology.• AR has great future as it promises better interaction with real and virtual world.
