Credit points: 15
This subject will cover the topic of Augmented Reality (AR) - that is, interactively overlaying computer-generated information on the real world - addressing both theory and implementation of effective AR applications. You will implement AR applications using off-the-shelf software (with a particular focus on Unity and Vuforia) and hardware (including mobile phones and the Microsoft HoloLens platform). You will also lead an in-class discussion regarding a specific AR publication and/or application, discussing the design principles and implementation choices that were employed. Topics include: AR displays, AR tracking, Unity development, human factors, computer graphics, and AR interaction techniques.
