An Approach for Construction of Augmented Reality Systems using Natural Markers and Mobile Sensors in Industrial Fields
Keywords:Augmented Reality, Data Visualization, Natural Markers
AbstractThis paper presents a methodology for the development of augmented reality (AR) visualization applications in industrial scenarios. The proposal presents the use of georreferenced natural markers detected in real time, which enables the construction of AR systems. This use of augmented visualization allows the creation of tools that can aid on-site maintenance activities for operators. AR use makes possible including information about the equipment during a specific procedure. In this work, the detection of natural markers in the scene are based on Haar-like features associated with equipment geolocalization. This approach enable the detection of equipment in multiple user’s viewpoints in the industrial scenario and makes it possible the inclusion of real information about those equipment in real time as AR annotations. In this way, beyond a methodology approach, this paper presents a new way for Power System information visualization in the field that can be used in both for training and for control operations.
