Augmented Reality Experiences

2015 ~ Present | GVU Center, Institute for People and Technology.


Enable the creation of augmented-reality applications and experiences using a wide range of delivery platforms and AR technologies. Current projects use Argon, an augmented reality software suite developed at Georgia Tech that is both a Javascript/HTML5 framework and a set of browsers and tools.

Issues Involved or Addressed

What are the user-interface, architectural, and software abstractions for cross-platform and multi-application augmented reality? How can multiple AR applications share one display effectively? What user interfaces can we use for AR applications on different platforms (from tablets to head-worn displays)? How can we support a diverse set of AR applications, from games to industrial applications to education and cultural heritage?
