AR Sand Table with VSTAR System
We have proposed a three-dimensional sand table based on the video see-through tabletop augmented reality (VSTAR) system. The hybrid registration algorithm is used combining marker-based OI iterative computer vision method and photoelectric encoders mechanical tracking method instead of computer vision method only, which makes tracking does not dependent on markers, so that the tracking field of vision is not limited to the scope of markers. The system is of high precision and can be used for architecture design show, military topography simulation, museum exhibition and other virtual sand table applications.
