Augmented Reality for Product Packaging: An Android Augmented Reality App
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Augmented Reality for smartphones, while still in its initial stages, has a great potential in relation to the future path of mobile marketing and has already shown significant market presence thus far. However, Augmented Reality is an almost new concept, but its basis and techniques have been used for years. By generating enthusiasm in the retail market, Augmented Reality presents many opportunities. Simulating virtual interaction in real-time for an unknown product, encourages customers to experience an advertisement. The sense enhancement that Augmented Reality provides over a real-world environment, might be either the result of the device's location or the environmental images surrounding the device. The latter is called vision Augmented Reality.
This study aims to develop a vision-based Augmented Reality application for Android platforms. The idea is based on a proposal offered by a ProductPackaging company, which would like to develop a smartphone application in order to provide shoppers an idea regarding what is inside the package. However, this is only one of the numerous advantages that AR brings and the benefits of this technology appears to be almost limitless in relation toincreasing productivity for customers. Once the goal has been achieved, the application can be used to provide relevant information about the product suchas physical specification, ingredients, animated instruction manual, repair wizard and so on.
The main focus of the entire implementation is on integrating an existing ARSDK and a Java rendering library so that they can cooperate together. In addition, the fundamentals associated with the Image Registration process, which is the basis of Augmented Reality, are addressed. Both the advantages and drawbacks of the implementation model are discussed in this paper as arethe problematic issues surrounding the execution steps.
