Augmented and virtual reality Introduction Augmented reality is a technology that combined the virtual reality with the real life. Some augmented reality was deals with live video imagery which is digitally enhanced with computer generated graphics. As example, they can see the real world as well as strategically placed computer generated images if a user might wear translucent goggles or view the screen of a camera equipped mobile device. While the virtual reality are term that used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. The person that becomes part of this virtual world will be able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions. Concept Augmented…show more content…
While, Virtual reality tracks the physical movements in the real world, the a rendering computer redraws the virtual world to reflects those movements. The updated virtual world is sent to the output. The output is sent back to a head mounted display. Hence, the users feels ‘immersed’ in the virtual world as if she/he was in the virtual world itself as all she can see is her rendered movements in the virtual world. Application There are have many application was used by using augmented and virtual reality. Firstly was used in navigation, this application are possibly the most natural fit of augmented reality with daily life. GPS systems was using augmented reality to make it easier to get the location. Wikitude drive for the android operating system which is currently in beta brings the GPS into the 21st century. By using the phone's camera in combination with the GPS, the users will see the selected route over the live view of what is in front of the…show more content…
The typical example of augmented reality when it comes to military applications of the technology is The Heads-Up Display (HUD). The transparent display was positioned directly in the fighter pilots view. The data typically displayed to the pilot includes altitude, airspeed and the horizon line in addition to other critical data. "Heads-up" terms was comes from the fact that the pilot doesn't have to look down at the aircraft's instrumentation to get the data they need. While the Head-Mounted Display (HMD) was used by ground troops. The critical data such as enemy location can be detected to the soldier within their line of sight. The simulations for training purposes also used in this
