AR is a technology that expands our physical world, combines layers of digital information on this.
Argument reality appears in a direct view of the current environment and adds audio, video, graphics.
This can be seen with the help of Wearable devices, smartphones, and tablets.
If we understood in easy language, a virtual scene is created by connecting another virtual world with the environment around you, which looks real.
This is also similar to virtual reality but it will make your eyes advanced by keeping you in your own world.
That is, you will not be able to tell the difference between the real world and the virtual world.
Augmented reality is an advanced form of virtual reality, in which a virtual scene is created by showing computer-generated graphics in the real environment around you.
That is, a new environment is created by adding a virtual environment to the environment around you, which looks absolutely real.
Augmented means to enlarge or present something better than before. That is, this technology cannot work alone.
It needs a ready-made environment in which it combines some objects through virtual reality to create a new virtual environment that looks real.
It is like virtual reality but it does not take you into any new world, but keeps you in your own world and gives you some new things. Which in reality is not there.
Are augmented reality and virtual reality the same?
No, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are both different technologies.
In virtual reality, the real world is transformed into a virtual world. Which does not exist in the real world. While in augmented reality, new things are introduced by adding new objects in the real world.
Types of Augmented Reality
Markless Augmented Reality
Marker-Based Augmented Reality
Projection-Based Augmented Reality
Superimposition-Based Augmented Reality
1. Markless Augmented Reality
This type of Augmented Reality utilizes, a GPS, a compass, a gyroscope, and an accelerometer to provide data based on user location.
Also called location-based or position-based augmented reality.
This type of Augmented Reality is used to produce map and direction, nearby business info, etc.
2. Marker Based Augmented Reality
It involves simple patterns such as QR/2D code and a camera to produce a result.
In this type of Augmented Reality, the camera plays the main role to distinguish the marker from the real-world object.
This is also known as image recognition, many companies use AR Technology to create application based results.
3. Projection Based Augmented Reality
With this technology, users can easily get involved with a new form of Augmented reality which simply projects artificial lights on to the real-world surfaces.
This allows human interaction by releasing light on to a real-world surface and then simulation the human interaction of the projected light through touch.
Most Projection Based Augmented Reality apps are created to detect user interaction.
The use of laser-plasma technology to launch an interactive hologram (based on a 3D analysis) into mid-air is another interesting application of projection-based AR.
4. Superimposition-Based AR
Whether partially or sluggishly developed, most AR app development companies employ superimposition-based AR to create new augmented views of an object that can be used to alter the original view of the same object.
The application will only be able to effectively change the original view of an object with an augmented one when it can determine the object model.
Therefore, when it comes to developing augmented reality apps based on superimposition, it is important to understand the role object recognition plays.
A typical example of this form of AR technology can be seen in the IKEA augmented reality furniture catalog.
This type of superimposition-based AR strategy represents a strong consumer-facing.
