Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Experts explore the latest research applications of augmented reality (AR), along with advancements in computer vision, indoor/outdoor localization, and human-computer interaction techniques that make these applications possible. AR is an approach to visualizing cyber information on top of physical imagery and manipulating cyber information through interactions with real-world objects. AR has shown significant promise in overcoming cyber-physical system visualization and interaction challenges in multiple domains, including medicine, construction, advertising, manufacturing, and gaming. A significant trend in AR practice is the rapid uptake of academic research in industrial AR applications. A variety of companies have begun commercializing AR applications in industries ranging from retail shopping experiences to print advertising to automotive driving assistance.
