Handheld Augmented Reality
The Christian Doppler Labor for Handheld AR is the premier research laboratory for mobile Augmented Reality.
Augmented Reality is a promising interface technology changing the way we access information. With ubiquitous handheld devices such as mobile phones, browsing our environment visually anywhere at anytime will be the predominant mode of interaction.
The Handheld AR team has made major contributions to the field of mobile Augmented Reality. We were the first to introduce Augmented Reality on PDAs in 2003 and were the first to demonstrate realtime Natural Feature Tracking on mobile phones in 2007. Our tracking technology has now become available world wide as part of the Qualcomm AR SDK.
Social AR is a project that targets new concepts for mobile Augmented Reality enabling laypersons to create content for mobile AR applications. Within that project we create techniques and applications allowing the creation of content in unprepared environments as well as the sharing of content between users.
Information Presentation for Augmented Reality is a project dealing with the two topics of integrating information in real world environments, and compact information presentation for small screen-estate.
Real-Time Self Localization is a project targeting the real-time localization of a mobile phone using vision and sensors. The developed localization framework is based on sparse 3D point clouds and our latest achievements in natural feature tracking. The sparse 3D point clouds are created through a 3D reconstruction pipeline using captured images from a high quality DSLR camera as input.
AR Graphics is a project dealing with visual coherence in video based AR. Visual coherence is about blending the virtual augmentations seamlessly with the real-world content. Unrealistic rendered virtual content does not pop out any more, which improves the AR experience.
AR Navigation The goal of this project is to design, implement and evaluate novel techniques for enhancing handheld navigation systems with AR.
