Layar is a FREE APP for iPhone and Android users
It uses a phone’s camera and GPS capabilities which allow people to learn more about the location, including historical information, nearby houses for rent or sale as well as aircraft flying overhead and find beaches.
It lets you view and navigate useful locations close to you, like TTC stops, ATMs, restaurants and many more
Digital “Layers” are displayed on Smartphone’s camera which enhances the view of real world. Experience the world in a whole new way as videos, links, etc helps to learn more about objects and location around us AUGMENTED REALITY By Devin, Disha, Evans, Fabrizio and Thomas What is Augmented Reality?
The Google driverless car is a project that was developed by Google. Google’s vehicles are now on the street, test-driving.
The way Google car works is using the most advanced technology. The “heart of our system” is a laser finder, which is placed on the roof of the car.
GPS, Wheel encoder that find out the vehicle's location and keep track of its movements, Four radars that is located on the front and rear bumpers that allow the car to “see”, A camera that is located near the rear-view mirror that detects traffic lights. Google's Driverless Car The MYO armband is a device that you wear on your forearm, it turns every arm gesture into a virtual Commands. While inheriting the kinetics experience from the multimedia industry, unlike other motion control, this device does not use camera based feedback system to recognize motion. It reads the electrical currents that has been sent to your muscles as you gesture and combines those readings with a six-access motion control unit.
The MYO uses a unique "on/off" gesture that is unlikely to occur normally to enable and disable control using the MYO.
The user via haptic feedback using MYO, which will let them know it is detecting and enabled the movements.
There are two ways MYO detects gestures and movements, muscle activity and motion sensing. MYO Future cars have been created in such ways that it will look great and also very convenient for us.
Researchers are increasingly looking to give drivers better, or augmented reality that will add more information ranging from directions to social media feeds to the see through windscreen. The most unintuitive part is that it is designed to make the street more safe for all the pedestrians.
Augmented reality is making its way in to cars by builds on “heads up display” or known as HUD. Its a equipment that is mostly used in fighter planes and made its way into high-end cars in the late 1990s. Future Cars
Gathering Information
Augmenting The Technology
Environment: Primary source of info. The Augmented reality technology puts an additional input device between our senses and the environment.
Input devices: a cam, a mike or a GPS become an additional sense available to the user.
Processing: receives the information gathered by the input devices and processes them so that it can add an overlapping layer on the top of what we see.
Output device: displays the result of these processes. In the case of a pair of augmented glasses for instance, a projector will create the appearance of labels on the top of the environment we see. While we move our eyes left and right around us we will be able to see “through” the reality a set of additional information Technology Components "Augmented reality is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data" Pros and Cons Current Development What is Google Glass? Google Glass Pros and Cons Current Development What is Google Glass? Google Glass With camera, a person can point, scan and view objects with Layar to see links and other digital aspects appear on top of the content you view everyday like newspapers, magazines, ads, etc. It also gives you certain information, for example price and availability of a book, shows you augmented content of magazine or printed ad that is compatible.
Static print(in magazines, etc.) comes to life with augmented reality video and interactivity
Scan any QR code and see the content right on top of it. Left, the Layar app can display photos, sourced from an app like Panoramio, of nearby sites of interest superimposed on the camera’s field of view.
Right, Layar uses data from Vesseltracker.com to identify ships in a harbor. Technology Augmented reality is the actual reality, not virtual, but with virtual enhancements that are offered to the user through output devices.
These devices have the capability to put such additional information between the user (sensing the reality) and the reality itself.
Known technologies get a different meaning, purpose and scope when employed in an Augmented Reality environment.
For instance a common video camera is not just a video capturing device but gathers visual information that are then processed to match other data that can be useful to the user. THANK YOU!
