Want To Know About Working Of Augmented Reality?
Augmented Reality has been a subject of increasing interest for decades. In a 2012 study, Berriman found that the term "augmented reality" was coined in 1990 by Tom Cowdell and David Misel, but that the concept of augmented reality is older.
In a 2014 article, Mekni and Lemieux defined ‘Augmented Reality’ (also known as 'Realite Augmentee' in the French language) as a technology that combines the properties of reality and virtuality to create interactive 3D presentations of products.
The four main components required of any Augmented Reality setup are display, input device, tracking, and computer. However, the way these components are assembled may vary depending on application requirements.
In a 2019 article, the Purdue Team noted that augmented reality could be applied to a variety of industries, including military or medical, shipping, tourism, advertising and promotion. In the military arena, augmented reality is used to facilitate manoeuvring soldiers and seeing them quickly to avoid distraction.
In the medical field, augmented reality techniques allow surgical intervention in a controlled environment. In this way, the surgeon makes use of increased sensory awareness which limits the risks associated with surgery.
In the navigation system, augmented reality offers a simplified driving experience and allows real-time information to be recalled. Augmented Reality also enables tourism innovation by replacing tour guides. Tourists can now view historical sites and see the location specifics of their smartphones.
