On Positioning for Augmented Reality Systems
In Augmented Reality (AR), see-through Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) superimpose virtual 3D objects over the real world. They have the potential to enhance a user's perception and his interaction with the real world. However, many AR applications will not be accepted until we can accurately align virtual objects in the real world. One step to achieve better registration is to improve the tracking system. This paper surveys the requirements for and feasibility of a combination of an inertial tracking system and a vision based positioning system implemented on a parallel SIMD linear processor array. 1 Inertial tracking for Augmented Reality Position and Orientation Tracking is used in Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR, AR). With a plethora of different graphics applications that depend on motiontracking technology, a wide range of interesting motion-tracking solutions have been invented [1],[2]. Many applications only require motion over a small region, and these tracking approaches ...
