Title: Management of Tracking and Tracking Accuracy in Industrial Augmented Reality Environments


Industrial Augmented Reality (IAR) techniques may help to increase the productivity of many working processes by augmenting interactively the physical scene with virtual information. Realtime position and orientation tracking of physical objects is needed to register them with the virtual world. It can be implemented based on a variety of sensors providing, e.g., optical, inertial, or acoustic measurements. Often, even a heterogeneous multi-sensor tracking environment is needed to achieve the needed levels of robustness and accuracy. This thesis describes a generic approach to deal with the complexity of heterogeneous tracking environments. An abstract semantic modeling concept based on spatial relationship graphs (SRG) and its implementation in a graphical data-flow editor is presented. Based on this, simulation and analysis tools for a rigorous management of tracking accuracy are described.
