9780321883575: Augmented Reality: Principles and Practice (Usability)

Today’s Comprehensive and Authoritative Guide to Augmented Reality


By overlaying computer-generated information on the real world, augmented reality (AR) amplifies human perception and cognition in remarkable ways. Working in this fast-growing field requires knowledge of multiple disciplines, including computer vision, computer graphics, and human-computer interaction. Augmented Reality: Principles and Practice integrates all this knowledge into a single-source reference, presenting today’s most significant work with scrupulous accuracy. Pioneering researchers Dieter Schmalstieg and Tobias Höllerer carefully balance principles and practice, illuminating AR from technical, methodological, and user perspectives.

 

Coverage includes

  • Displays: head-mounted, handheld, projective, auditory, and haptic
  • Tracking/sensing, including physical principles, sensor fusion, and real-time computer vision
  • Calibration/registration, ensuring repeatable, accurate, coherent behavior
  • Seamless blending of real and virtual objects
  • Visualization to enhance intuitive understanding
  • Interaction–from situated browsing to full 3D interaction
  • Modeling new geometric content
  • Authoring AR presentations and databases
  • Architecting AR systems with real-time, multimedia, and distributed elements

 

This guide is indispensable for anyone interested in AR, including developers, engineers, students, instructors, researchers, and serious hobbyists.

Dr. Höllerer holds a Diplom in informatics from the Technical University of Berlin, as well as an M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science from Columbia University. He is a recipient of the U.S. National Science Foundation's CAREER award for his work on "Anywhere Augmentation." enabling mobile computer users to place annotations in 3D space wherever they go. In 2013, he was named an ACM Distinguished Scientist. Dr. Höllerer is author of more than one hundred fifty peer-reviewed journal and conference publications in the areas of augmented and virtual reality, information visualization, 3D displays and interaction, mobile and wearable computing, and social computing. Several of these publications have been selected for best paper or honorable mention awards at such venues as the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR), IEEE Virtual Reality (VR), ACM Virtual Reality Software and Technology, ACM User Interface Software and Technology, ACM MobileHCI, IEEE SocialCom, and IEEE CogSIMA. Dr. Höllerer is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. Among his many organizational roles for scientific conferences he served as program chair for IEEE VR 2015, ICAT 2013, IEEE ISMAR 2010 and 2009; as general chair of IEEE ISMAR 2006; and as member of the steering committee of IEEE ISMAR.

Review:

“This is an essential book for anyone interested in Augmented Reality, by two of the leading pioneers. It provides an outstanding foundation to the fast growing field of AR, both for those already in the field as well as those who just want to understand the technology more deeply.”

–Dr. Mark Billinghurst, Professor of Human Computer Interaction, University of South Australia, and creator of the ARToolKit


"At first, I thought this book provided a very solid foundation for any Augmented Reality newbie who needed to learn all aspects of AR, but then I realized I couldn’t stop digging and learning...it goes deeper than many of the AR books I reviewed in the past decade!"

–Ori Inbar, Executive Director, Augmented World Expo (augmentedworldexpo.com); CEO and founder, AugmentedReality.org
