Augmented Reality

Augmented reality, in computer programming, a process of combining or “augmenting” video or photographic displays by overlaying the images with useful computer-generated data. Tempestive solutions for Augmented Reality are implemented within the Reamplia Platform.

The earliest applications of augmented reality were almost certainly the “heads-up-displays” (HUDs) used in military airplanes and tanks, in which instrument panel-type information is projected onto the same cockpit canopy or viewfinder through which a crew member sees the external surroundings.

Faster computer processors have made it feasible to combine such data displays with real-time video. Augmented reality applications also have been developed for smartphones and to a number of smart glasses to display information.

Due to encumbered control, Smart Glasses are primarily designed for micro-interaction like reading a text message. Such information may be supplied using some kind of positioning system to provide location dependent information.
