B. Alappanavar, Ms. Ankeeta Bhujbal, Mr. Shantanu Deshmukh IT department, Sinhgad Academy of Engineering, University of Pune Pune ABSTRACT Till date we have seen many new technologies but Augmented Reality is a pretty new to us and everybody. This research paper will give you a much better idea about Augmented Reality and how it can be implemented into different devices .This paper will also help you to know and understand different augmented reality based services. Augmented Reality is complex to implement into mobile phone but taking into consideration the use of GPS, we can broadcast live experience to the user with the help of Augmented views. The Development of Augmented Reality particularly is done on two platforms Mac and Android. Creating Android application will help the researchers to explore topic while going through this technology. This technology will help us to map 3D objects over a 2D map. Also Augmented Reality can be used to make Virtual Guides as well as Virtual Objects for people in different areas. This research paper will explain how Augmented Reality Technology can be used for Location Based Services. Location Based Services are those services which guide users based on Location and guidance will be with the help of Augmented View or 3D models as well. Along with 3D models we can include services like Alarming and Profiling into it. Keywords: Augmented Reality, Mobile Device, Location Based Services, Tracking. I. INTRODUCTION The use of GPS started in early 90’s but to make these services more attractive we add up augmented reality and gps together. This will take place with the new technology called Location Based Augmented Reality. Augmented Reality is technology which provides us a greater view of an object. That object could be building, machine parts, virtual humans, planets etc. The word Augment means greater or detailed view. AR of an object will produce a detailed view. AR can be implemented for multiple objects on multiple platform. With the 237

International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976-6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 4, Issue 2, March – April (2013), © IAEMEhelp of AR we can generate actual view of real world and we can map that view intoelectronic display. We would like to use location services to help user to provide locationbased services as alarms, profiling, searching nearby restaurants from its current place.II. HISTORY AR technology is the newest has its roots in computer interface research in the earlydays of computer science. Many of the main concepts of AR have been familiar in moviesand science fiction at least as far back as movies like The Terminator (1984) and RoboCop(1987). Both movies feature cyborg characters whose views of the world are augmented by asteady stream of annotations and graphical overlays in their vision systems. Practical systemsusing AR as it’s currently viewed began to be developed in the next decade. The termaugmented reality was introduced in 1990 by Tom Caudell, a researcher at The BoeingCompany. Throughout the early and mid 1990s, Caudell and his colleagues at Boeing workedon developing head-mounted display systems to enable engineers to assemble complex wirebundles using digital, AR diagrams superimposed on a board over which the wiring would bearranged. Because they made the wiring diagrams virtual, the previous system of usingnumerous unwieldy printed boards was greatly simplified.III. FUNCTIONALITY Functionality of our product is all the operations which can be performed as per theusers requirement. There are very few products which can perform all the operations in singleproduct. Our product give the facility of performing multiple operations. Overall there arefive product functionalities. This application will run in background process and also it willhave the auto start functionality. As our product is location based we will make the use ofGPS and Google maps.IV. TRACKING For the purpose of tracking we are going to make the use of GPS which is usedworldwide. To find the exact location we need appropriate tracking of the locations. We willmake the use of longitude and latitude API to add the location. With the help of these API’swe will get the accurate position tracking, we will get the precision of tracking positions frommillimeters to meters. In our project framework design is based upon XML. This will givethe exact location on map which is obligatory and will show the desired building’s 3D viewon the map. The augmented view of the place will be obtained and user can see the place on themap. This will help to promote the advertisements and hotels can show the services and menucard’s.V. PROFILING We would like to add additional operation as profiling in our product. Profile ofmobile handsets is like configuration parameters for so many things. Some of the examples ofprofiles are office, silent, outdoor etc. Now people use these profiles as per their schedule butthey need to update it after their action is over. It means that profiles cannot update by it. So 238

International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976-6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 4, Issue 2, March – April (2013), © IAEMEwe propose applications which will automatically switching profiles as per user location. Theapplication also enables the user both to visualize virtual objects in the camera image and tolocalize the user in a familiar environment.VI. AUGMENTED VIEW In genral augmented reality (AR) is known as a innovation that shows cluster ofactual /real time mixing of auto generated content with real time broadcasting. Eventually,Augmented Reality is far different than virtual reality (VR) in which Virtual Reality thinks ofcreating whole new environment whereas AR utilizes various Hard Component technologiesfor the generation of view called as Augmented View.. The word augmented means greater or larger. This means augmented view willprovide us a greater and detailed view of any object. Augmented view of an object can beuseful for collecting information of that object also it may help in identifying the places forunknown people. Augmented view is a type of 3-Dimensional View and object can be seen from anypoint or direction. Augmented view will provide accurate as well as detailed isometric model.Isometric 3-Dimensional view generated from 2-dimensional view.VII. PROTOTYPING The term Prototyping means working demonstrations of computers. Prototypingcoupled with pioneering hardware constructions. Before manufacturing and mass-producing anew invention, it is desirable and often necessary to have a working implementation, howevercrude, to demonstrate it. Products from mobile phones to automobiles go through aprototyping step and demonstrate technical features. In electronics, prototyping by means of atemporary prototyping board enables the circuit designer to set up a working circuit fortesting without having to waste materials by soldering a permanent circuit prematurely. Thesame principles are becoming increasingly true of software. Many people who are notproficient programmers however have fascinating and ground-breaking ideas for softwareprototyping tools such as the Processing programming environment were created for suchpeople. Just as an architect can archetype a device in order to seek funding and one dayaccumulate production, a designer can prototype an application or software environment thatcan later be implemented competently in a more robust or faster language.VIII. FUTURE SCOPE We will identify the terrorist places and will check the information of the atom-bombsand the configuration. For implementing the above technology first we are implementing theproduct called location based augmented reality. With the help of augmented reality further we will be able to check the configurationof the elements of fruits. We will get to know if there is any bomb placed in the fruit too, as itwill show the total information of the fruit as in how much water is present in it and what arethe vitamins we are going to obtain from it. This is the main reason we have selected thetopic location based augmented reality. 239

CONCLUSIONS Thus from above reading we can conclude that AR is technique that uses bothHardware as well as Software techniques for generation of Augmented view which are muchdifferent than the view in Virtual Reality. Generating Augmented view can be very helpful in areas like Education, Mobile Tech.and Tourism.ACKNOWLEDGMENT First and foremost we would like to thank our project guide Mrs. PankajaAlappanavar for their valuable guidance and advice.
