A Novel Framework to Create More Realistic Augmented Reality Applications Using Images in Mobile Phones

P. Bavithra Matharasi and N. Vijayalakshmi

Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging technology that combines real world scene with computer generated scene to give a more realistic vision. Applications of AR are widespread: from fun-filled entertainment to serious surgical training, from games to training fighter flight. Success of any AR products lies in creating a realistic and immersive system. An immersive AR system requires special hardware and complex software, whereas a semi immersive system could be achieved with a smart phone. Smart phones are equipped with high resolution camera, efficient touch screen and different sensors that is very powerful for any AR applications. Building AR systems using mobile phones is called “Mobile Augmented Reality Systems (MARS)”. One of the important uses of a smart mobile phone is taking photos or recording videos. Utilizing these pictures or images to create a more realistic AR application is the basic idea behind this research. This pictures and images are abstracted into various objects and stored with the detailed information in a database. These objects could be added to the real world scene. graphical effects, translation and even animation could be added. This computer manipulated images will give more realistic effect to the AR applications. This paper proposes a frame work to create a more realistic personal applications for MARS.
