AR-Browser: an Application Based on the Mixed Reality System VR-AVALON
This talk presents the tool "AR-Browser" developed within the project ARVIKA. The basic idea consists of embedding the AR-System in an Internet-Browser, and take advantage of a clear and easy-to-use interface. Further development and the merging of virtual and augmented reality at system level led to the system VR-AVALON, a component based mixed reality platform. The fundamental feature of this system is to enable development of complex applications only by connecting nodes of the scenegraph, and thus to avoid programming. The presentation of various advanced VR/AR-applications shows the major properties of the system and demonstrates its flexibility.
