Whitepaper: A Wearable Augmented Reality System for Navigation Using Positioning Infrastructures and a Pedometer

by Nara Institute of Science and TechnologyJan 01, 2008

Since computers have made remarkable progress in resent years, a wearable computer can be realized. At the same time, Augmented Reality (AR) which merges the real and virtual worlds has received a great deal of attention as a new method for displaying information. If one constructs an annotation overlay system for real scene using AR techniques with a wearable computer, it can be applied for many applications. To realize wearable AR systems, the position and orientation of user’s viewpoint

Whitepaper: Geometric Registration Using Positioning Infrastructures and a Pedometer for Wearable Augmented Reality

by Nara Institute of Science and TechnologyJan 01, 2008

This paper has described a wearable augmented reality system which can be used in indoor and outdoor environments seamlessly using positioning infrastructures and a pedometer. RFID tags and IrDA markers are used as components of positioning infrastructures, and the system specifies the user’s position at appointed points by receiving position IDs with RFID tag reader and an IrDA receiver. When the user goes away from components of positioning infrastructures, the user’s position is
