Case studies — Augmented reality (AR)
The «Space» project is a 3D solution based on the «living 3D markers» augmented reality technology.
This interactive presentation was created in August 2009 for demonstration at the booth of JSC Russian Space Systems at the MAKS 2009 International Aviation and Space Salon.
It works with different types of displays both with monoscopic and stereoscopic surfaces, including the glasses-free Philips 3D display and the JVC 3D monitor based on the circular polarization technology.
The project software is a virtual interactive environment that contains a number of 3D models dedicated to space explorations.
Each of the «living 3D markers» has its own 3D model. The picture on a real marker corresponds to the 3D model image.
All in all we created ten 3D models for this project. Each of them is linked to its own marker. All the models are animated.
They include GLONASS satellites, nanosatellites, the client’s logo, the globe, the Moon, the Proton rocket’s launch at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, and others.
The interactive area of the «living 3D markers» augmented reality system is an ordinary table. Users can sit at it, work with the system and hold negotiations at the same time. The camera is set on top.
EligoVision uses its own software to recognize the augmented reality markers.
Therefore the «living 3D markers» augmented reality system by EligoVision allows modeling any theme-based application.
The project hardware is an interactive visual 3D solution. It was shown at the booth of JSC Russian Space Systems at the MAKS 2009 International Aviation and Space Salon in August 2009. The hardware includes
- interactive «living 3D markers» system: a camera, a set of markers, a graphics workstation equipped with a professional video card such as NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800;
- autostereoscopic Philips WOWvx display (42').
