Research Issue: Ubiquitous Augmented Reality - UAR

Fachgebiet Augmented Reality (FAR)

General Description

Our research focus lies on bringing AR technology into real applications. To this end, we look not only at "classical AR" solutions but consider suitable variations, thereby combining AR with concepts of mobile and ubiquitous computing. This leads to the concept of Ubiquitous Augmented Reality.

trackframe

Use of AR technology in wide-range industry plants requires a tracking framework which supports a fusion of various tracking technologies based on careful evaluations of tradeoffs between technical requirements and costs. It is the goal of the trackframe project to systematically develop the formal basis of a tracking framework. The concept is expected to consider algorithmic and data-related standards via which tracking systems can be dynamically merged. Furthermore, trackframe aims at providing concepts towards the analysis of quality criteria (such as error statistics for individual sensors) and towards supporting AR-engineers in planning improvements to their tracker configuration. Three demonstrators will exhibit trackframe concepts in industrial and academic setups. (Bayerische Forschungsstiftung (BFS))

DWARF - Augmented Reality Framework

DWARF is a CORBA based framework that allows the rapid prototyping of distributed Augmented Reality applications. Augmented Reality is a new way for humans and computers to interact: real-world scenes are augmented with virtual objects. The augmented scene can, for example, be presented to the user through a see-through head-monted display. DWARF is a Framework for the development of such systems: a collection of intelligent modules that can be combined flexibly depending on the needs of the desired application.
The project started in July 2000.
