Augmented reality-based data visualization over real-world scenes

In our ultimate demo, we will introduce the basic framework for AR-based data visualization by overlaying 3D data on real-world objects and scenes. We apply the same GPU-accelerated simulation model and register it to the world with a sensor-based tracking approach. The following diagram illustrates the final architecture of the implementation in this chapter:

Getting ready

This final demo integrates together all the concepts previously introduced in this chapter and requires the capture (and possibly processing) of a real-time video stream using OpenCV on an Android-based phone. To ...
