Designing Augmented Reality Learning Systems with Real-Time Tracking Sensors

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 259)

Abstract

This study aims to develop an advanced augmented reality (AR) system by integrating an AR system and a real-time tracking system. Lab experiments are critical parts of engineering education, and it is possible to revolutionize engineering labs to be self-paced learning by using AR technology. However, the current hand gesture interactions to communicate with AR devices have shown several limitations. Hence, in this study, we developed a location-based AR system by integrating a real-time tracking sensor and an AR device. This new AR learning system could reduce transition time between learning modules and improve learners’ interaction between the modules and an AR device.
