W. Purgathofer:
"Augmented Reality - Basics and Technology";
Talk: AR-Conference, Kaoshung, Taiwan (invited); 2008-05-31.

English abstract:
The talk will give an overview of Augmented Reality. In contrast to Virtual Reality which immerses the user into a completely artificial world, Augmented Reality leaves the user in the real world, thereby adding or enhancing details for some purpose. Applications are in medicine, in industrial maintenance, in navigation, in museums, and many more. Hardware devices used include see-through head mounted displays and augmented video signals, always including some sort of tracking of the user. The user interface design requires new techniques and variants. Augmented Reality enables collaborative work of people either at the same or at distant locations. Mobile Augmented Reality is based on advanced communication technology and lightweight devices.
