Bachelor thesis, Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad India, 2010. RoboCAM A Multiclient Video Conferencing Tool (Software Copyright Pending)Selected Tracking System:An alternative approachProjects Some of the most successful AR tracking systems are those based on a combination of structure from motion (SFM) and SLAM approaches, that both model and localize at the same time. Our method, uses model building technology of Bundler to create vari- ous 3D maps of the environment. These 3D maps are then used for AR localization over a wide area. I worked on the Tracking and Rendering part of the project to implement our pose estimation algorithm and rendering both 3D and 2D Augmentations with the help of the system. Advisor: Prof Adrian David Cheok, Prof Gerhard Roth [Feb’10 to Dec’10 ] Training Editor:An AR Authoring System Another module of our project was to create an AR Authoring system which could po- sition objects in a Virtual World relative to a Map and these transformations would be registered accurately with the Tracking System.For this application,we used Lib3DS to load the .3DS model,TinyXML to store & transmit the XML Stream,OpenGL to build the GUI and LibSDL to place the textures on the 3DS Models.The Maps were created offline and stored in the PLY format. Advisor: Prof Adrian David Cheok, Prof Gerhard Roth [Dec’10 to Feb’11 ] P-SCAR:A Presentation System for Classrooms using Augmented Reality In this project,we developed a presentation system for classrooms in which the teacher could give interactive presentations to students present within the classroom and those at home .At the teacher’s end ,the teacher controls the flow of the presentation by means of Speech and Hand Gestures and accordingly these events are reflected onto the stu- dents application.The Entire Presentation is divided into sessions such as Teaching,Q & A etc. which are managed by the system. Advisor: Prof.Shekhar Verma [Dec’09 to Mar’10 ] A Prelim Investigation of Augmented Reality Applications in Universities In this project,we had to demonstrate the use of Marker Based AR in building simple 2 of 5
