Smartphones have evolved considerably in processing power over the last years. They now feature multi-core CPUs as well as GPUs and consumer-quality cameras up to HD resolution. This makes them an interesting platform for graphics and vision and opens new opportunities for research.
The aim of AR4DOC is to facilitate the task of document inspection by a human operator. This requires the person to have detailed knowledge about the nature of a document, which may be outdated or even unavailable at the time of inspection.
We seek to provide this information in an interactive way using Mobile Augmented Reality (AR), so that a well-grounded decision on the vailidity of a document is possible. This involves several tasks such as document localization, recognition, tracking, presentation as well as interaction.
