Lately I have been very interested in augmented reality applications and the many uses there can be for this kinds of apps, but there is very little information on the existing engines for object or image target recognition. As far as I've managed to investigate, the best (free, since there's also [Wikitude](http://www.wikitude.com/)) engine to work with for predefined image targets is [Qualcomm's Vuforia](http://www.qualcomm.com/solutions/augmented-reality), even though there are [several](http://www.hitl.washington.edu/artoolkit/) [other](http://www.mixare.org/) http://obviousengine.com/ that work with precomposed images and patters. I want to know if any of you, fellow developers, have any knowledge on other engines for this kind of applications, in any …

I recently got accepted into a research program for the Computer Science department at my university and I was assigned with the project: Augmented Reality for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems at CBRN Events This project will augment video imagery from a small UAS with labels showing responders during a CBRN event where important locations are, such as schools that need to be evacuated or a hospital where victims can be transported to. Currently, a responder has to look at the image feed to see if they see anything that looks like a school or hospital versus a factory or warehouse …

Hello everyone, I'm trying to compile the "Simple VRML" example, from the ARtoolkit library.

Well, i'm really new to this programming thing, but i don't have a teacher or anything like that, i'm an autodidact so I really have a lot of questions on this matter. I'm trying to do a project using Augmented Reality. As far as I know, there are two main compilers(?) for this: ARToolkit and Opencv. I've tried to Link both of them on Visual studio and Code::Blocks with no succes. Does anyone knows how to do this. P.D. Seems like code::blocks gets to Identify the headers, but not the commands:

Augmented reality has been a bit of a Star Trek thing until now - you know, one of those things that seems a good idea but won't really work outside of a few sci-fi shows. Well, maybe it won't be for long. The [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8421684.stm"]BBC[/URL] is among the sources suggesting it's going to be used a great deal on mobiles in the very near future. Having seen some of it in action during 2009, my guess is that they're right. Not because it's spectacular, which it can be, but because of the way it can interact with other timely applications. The …
