Developing an augmented reality (AR) system involves a multitude of interconnected algorithms such as image fusion, camera synchronization and calibration, and brightness control, each having diverse parameters. This abundance of features, while beneficial in nature for its applicability to different tasks, is detrimental to developers as they try to navigate different combinations and pick the most suitable configuration for their application. Additionally, the temporally inconsistent nature of the real world hinders the development of reproducible and reliable testing methods for AR systems. To help address these issues, we develop and test a virtual reality (VR) environment [1] that allows the simulation of variable AR configurations for image fusion. In this work, we improve our system with a more realistic AR glass model adhering to physical light and glass properties. Our implementation combines the incoming real-world background light and the AR projector light at the level of the AR glass.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
