Strategies and Methods for Using Augmented Reality
Augmented reality (AR) is a modern technology which integrates 3D virtual objects into the real environment in real time. It can be used for many purposes, which should improve different processes in daily life. The paper will analyze the areas in which this technology is currently used. First, the history of the development of augmented reality will be recalled. Then, this technology will be compared to virtual reality because these terms are often incorrectly used interchangeably. This paper describes the tools and popular platform solutions related to augmented reality. The most common problems related to the use of this technology will be discussed, including popular approaches concerning optical and video combining methods. The existing applications and their potential in solving everyday problems will be analyzed. Finally, the perspectives for the development of augmented reality and its possibilities in the future will be discussed. This paper provides a starting point for using and learning about augmented reality for everyone.(original abstract)
