Section Description

Topic: Mobile Augmented Reality for Pedestrian Navigation. In this course we will be concentrating on recent technology that facilitates the development of augmented reality pedestrian navigation applications: geo-referenced data (maps, LiDAR point clouds, panoramic images and depth maps, 3D models), smartphones (phone sensors: camera, GPS, accelerometer, compass), graphics engines (OpenGL ES) to overlay relevant information in the viewfinder, and, more recently, vision engines that perform natural feature detection and tracking in the video data captured with the phone camera. This is a project-focused class. We will build prototype applications for Nokia mobile phones using Commercial GIS/Map data. We will also read and present relevant papers. Several presenters from the Geospatial industry will come to talk about the latest relevant technology. This section is for either undergraduate or graduate students.
