Geo-location Augmented Reality

Geo-location Augmented Reality

This project tries to explore navigation using Geolocation AR.

Problem Statement : Remember Pokemon GO? How about doing something similar but more useful? How about moving around with smartphones in hand looking around Augmented World. Geo-location AR has huge potential in navigation and assistance.

Rough Timeline:

  • Week 1 - Familiarization with Unity software and Vuforia SDK
  • Week 2 - Development of simple GPS and Gyroscope reading script.

Checkpoint 1 - Simple app to display GPS data and Gyroscope sensors readings.

  • Week 3 - Add objects at a specified location (without gyroscopic control).
  • Week 4 - Move the added object according to the motion of camera (using gyroscope).

Checkpoint 2 - To be able to add objects at specified Geo Location.

  • Week 5 - Record GPS values from major points in insti and also take pictures of image targets for secondary identification.
  • Week 6 - Use the previously built module to augment models at GPS locations of insti.

Checkpoint 3 - Add secondary Image Target based recognition.

  • Week 7 - Add secondary identification using captured Image Target pics.
  • Week 8 - Documentation and Final.

Checkpoint 4 -Combine GPS based detection and Image Target based detection.

Documentations and End.
