AUGUR: portable AR visualization of structure within structure using high precission detection
This project aims to develop portable measurement tools with in-situ visualization for the construction industry. A future measurement tool will provide a direct augmented reality view of measured properties over the real environment together with instructions as to where and how a certain task can be completed. For example, a metal detection tool should be able to provide direct visual feedback on the location of hidden metallic structures over a live video view of the inspected wall area. Furthermore it can guide a construction engineer to the optimal position for drilling a hole, avoiding any damage to existing structures.
Thus the tools should combine information from several sources to provide interactive and contextaware
guidance: Measurements from built-in sensors; location-aware through online tracking and registration; spatial, semantic information retrieved from a building information system (BIM). At the same time, future tools need to be simple to be used by non-expert users; therefore the system needs to be intuitive and guide users in the correct operation to fulfil their tasks. To accomplish this goal, The project addresses the following challenges:
