Location Based Augmented Reality for Interactive Television Drama
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis explores augmented reality (AR) for Java enabled consumer mobile phones for use in an interactive TV drama. The problems that are faced when dealing with limited processing power and memory constraints are examined and so are the minimum demands set on the telephones. A discussion of what AR is and where the development of mobile AR stands today is presented.
Based on a dialogue with Swedish Television (SVT) and the evaluation of current mobile phones a possible solution is presented based primarily on the idea of visual 2D tags. Visual tags are machine readable codes storing information and properly designed they can be used for the extraction of location and orientation information. This makes augmentation with 3D synthetic objects theoretically possible. The mathematical ideas behind decoding these visual codes are explained. The use of common corner detectors was attempted as a solution of the stated problem. A short description of the theory behind corner detectors and some images of the results are included in this thesis. The thesis concludes with a discussion of the findings and of possible future work.
