Project ARLabs was initiated as Physics and Chemistry labs where mandatory for a student during their 1st year of Engineering, where the student would learn for a year and then later on write his semesters. The problem here is unlike Computer Science labs where one can practice the program at a computer from his/her home, here the student is dependent on the apparatus. Hence Project ARLabs allows the students to view these models of the apparatus and also it comprises of the relevant experiment video which demonstrates how the experiment should be performed. Therefore the student can recollect these experiments and work with them.
Incorporated markerless tracking, hence an image can be incorporated as a target image for the application. Clic AR has support for Cloud and Offline content loading of project assets with enhanced Image tracking and 3D model rendering. It processes increased stability with multi-marker capability with support for real-time model interaction. Clic AR includes support for 3D model formats such as .obj, .fbx, .3ds, .max and .dae
It’s an upcoming technology where digital content is overlayed on real-time entity or object. Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable.
3D Model Community
A web portal was created where the student community can upload and embed 3D models with ARLabs. A series of workshops have been planned to be conducted where students are taught to model along with how to create basic augmented reality experiences.
- Laboratory Experiments – Chemistry, Mechanical, Engineering Mechanics
- Engineering prototyping
- Anatomy interactions
- Orthopedic implementations
The future attributes of the project includes real time interaction with the model, meaning he can interact with the 3D model and perform the experiments, thereby providing a smart class experience to the students right from the convenience of their smart phones, tablets or laptops.
