Augmented Reality storytelling application

This blog is about the development of an application for Augmented Reality storytelling for indoor and outdoor use. The testbed is carried out in collaboration between Visual Dimension, Fraunhofer IGD and the Provincial Archaeological Museum (pam) of Ename.

The application recognises images in exhibition or on site panels, adds 3D visualisation of a content in augmented reality mode and provides sounds or text fragments. It can be use indoor, in museum exhibition and monuments, and outdoor, in monumental, archaeological and natural sites.

The content of the application is an hidden layer of the museum exhibition or site that the visitor has to discover by exploration. Once the 3D model attached to the target image is discovered, visitor can explore it by moving the tablet. The 3D model can be explored from all sides while an audio explanation tells the story that is linked to the object. This application allows to show in augmented reality mode the museum object on display but in a digitally restored way, the monument explained on the panel or any 3D object related to the target object.

Finally, the application has different tours for specific target audience, in order to make the museum or the site visit more appealing and interactive.
