Augmented Reality: Application to In-Vehicle Navigation
Even with today’s technically advanced navigation systems, user experience situations where announcements are difficult to understand and misleading. Augmented reality – the integration of computer generated content into the vehicle surrounding – can provide an intuitive and unambiguous way to communicate navigation information; it can even serve as a novel user interface that allows interaction with the surrounding. In this paper, challenges, constraints, and possible solutions for AR in-vehicle applications are discussed. Details of the technical and design decisions of the “first in-vehicle augmented video system” are explained, as well as features and possible future upgrades.
