Creating a virtual presence to interact with others on a shared task
Using ar to control robots across long distances
Museums/ visitor attractions – visually replicate historical moments/ battles etc. where the users can freely explore an area/ interact with virtual objects etc. i.e. go to some historical ruins and see what the structures looked like 1000’s of years ago
AR can be used to assist surgeons when performing operations – displaying scans, medical history etc.
Has been used in training simulations to replicate haptic feedback in surgeries.
Virtually mapping component information/ details onto an object
i.e. looking at conduit will not tell you much information about e.g. is it an electrical or gas conduit but by using AR we can set specific information about it e.g. it is an electrical conduit that contains the cabling for the emergency backup power etc.
Combining sensors with AR to virtually replicate activity within a system
i.e. checking the flow of water through a plumbing system, AR could take the flow data and replicate it in a visual manner
Types of AR
Marker based (QR codes etc.)
Markerless (GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth etc.)
Projection based - Projecting artificial light onto real-world surfaces
Superimposed - partially of fully replaces the original view of an object with a newly augmented view.
