Accurate outdoor augmented reality - applications and challenges
The presentation will briefly describe and explain the main challenge when using AR in outdoor environments, which is accurate registration of content to the real world. An affordable solution to perform mobile handheld AR will be presented, together with a use-case to highlight underground infrastructure on road surfaces. Based on the setup in TheiaXR, several scenarios to use head-worn, handheld and projector based options to present relevant content to the operator will be presented.
