Augmented Reality is a view of a physical and real-world environment. It could be in live, direct or indirect. Those elements are augmented by a computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. In fact, reality is modified by a computer. Technology consists in modifying one’s current perception of reality.
Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. Thanks to the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world can become interactive and digitally touchable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects is overlaid on the real world.
Augmented Reality in simple terms is the fusion of digital information and real environment.
Three main stages are recognized in the augmented reality process of treatment of a real video flux:
1.Recognition of an image, an object, a face or a body
2.Space location in real time of this image, object, face or body
3.Superposition of a media (video, 3D, 2D, text, etc…) on this image, object, face or body
It is actually possible to use Augmented Reality to see the inside of a car, robot or human body through a simple screen. It can present every part on a 1:1 scale, with an accuracy that is unmatched. Your presentation would become a breathtaking demonstration.
