About the Course:

This course aims at teaching the various aspects that must be considered in order to create an Augmented Reality (AR) application. These aspects concern low-level implementation as well as high level implementation and therefore cover the full bandwidth of challenges in building an AR application. The students will be taught how to use modern Software Development Toolkits and off-the-shelf hardware to program their own stand-alone AR application during the semester.

The hardware of choice will be LEGO Mindstorm Robots modified with an additional radio camera to have an advanced AR platform.

3D Modeling and Animation

We do have Maya 8.5 available for Modeling and Animation at the chair.
To be able to use your maya files in Virtools you need a converter. You can download a Maya to Virtools converter here: Maya to Virtools Converter
Maya and the exporter is now installed at the right computer in the lab.
