Today's Comprehensive and Authoritative Guide to Augmented RealityBy overlaying computer-generated information on the real world, augmented reality (AR) amplifies human perception and cognition in remarkable ways. Working in this fast-growing field requires knowledge of multiple disciplines, including computer vision, computer graphics, and human-computer interaction. Augmented Reality: Principles and Practice integrates all this knowledge into a single-source reference, presenting today's most significant work with scrupulous accuracy. Pioneering researchers Dieter Schmalstieg and Tobias Hoellerer carefully balance principles and practice, illuminating AR from technical, methodological, and user perspectives. Coverage includesDisplays: head-mounted, handheld, projective, auditory, and hapticTracking/sensing, including physical principles, sensor fusion, and real-time computer visionCalibration/registration, ensuring repeatable, accurate, coherent behaviorSeamless blending of real and virtual objectsVisualization to enhance intuitive understandingInteraction-from situated browsing to full 3D interactionModeling new geometric contentAuthoring AR presentations and databasesArchitecting AR systems with real-time, multimedia, and distributed elements This guide is indispensable for anyone interested in AR, including developers, engineers, students, instructors, researchers, and serious hobbyists.
