Research on Smart Augmentation Reality Technology in Health Educational Games for Elementary Students Based on Android Platforms

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 181)


As an interest of development of games using smart augmented reality technology has been rising recently, it draws a constant attention to developers of smart phone OS such as iOS from Apple iPhone or Android from Google. Especially, Android OS has an advantage as an open source which can be accessed without any restriction. In this study, we proposed system architecture and algorithm with the analysis on technology of an open source NyARToolkit in order to develop smart augmentation reality applications in health educational games for elementary students in such an important period when they keep healthy for the rest of their lives. The results of our research can promote the activation of various functional games using smart augmentation reality technology and the proposed system is expected to contribute to the development of on-line smart augmentation reality technology based on an on-line networking system.
