Title:Augmented Reality for the Enterprise: Anchored, Marker-free and Connected
Abstract:
While augmented reality (AR) has been steadily gaining popularity in recent years, the majority of AR solutions are either mixed reality (MR), where graphics are not attached to specific elements in the scene, or marker-based AR, where graphics are anchored to a planar object visible in the scene. These solutions are often suitable for limited scenarios, but typical use-cases in the industrial domain require precisely anchored, marker-free AR. Our work in the Cognitive Vision and Augmented Reality group at IBM Research in Haifa focuses on research in AR for technical training, field maintenance, IoT, and other use-cases. In this talk I will present the group's AR platform and review some of the real-world installations in the industrial domain.
