About the Course:

Today, easy and rapid development of simple AR application is possible using toolkits like AR Toolkit or FLARToolKit. However, when developing applications for the medical domain such simple toolkits are not powerfull enough to provide adequate performance, accuracy and visualization. In this lab course we will use CAMPAR, an advanced medical AR framework, to develop medical AR applications. You will learn about all important issues in medical AR like registration, temporal synchronization and visualization. You will work on our AR setup, consisting of optical tracking hardware and a head mounted display (HMD). The lab course will consist of several weekly assignments that will help you to get familiar with CAMPAR. The second part of the lab course will be a bigger project that can be done in groups of two people.

Experience in C++ is very beneficial for this lab course.

Several applications (mostly but not only AR) that have been implemented using the CAMPAR framework can be seen in this video

You can find more information on applications that have been implemented using CAMPAR here.
