The basic concept of augmented reality (AR) is to place information registered with the environment into the user’s perception. One of the main challenges of AR is to keep these virtual objects registered to the view of the user so that they appear as fixed to the environment. The aim of this project is to develop vision based methods which allow significant progress of AR technologies in terms of ease of implementation, usability, reliability and robustness. An expected consequence is the widening of the current application field of AR and the improvement of the freedom of the user during applications.
The team is active in both medical and classical applications of augmented reality.
