AR technology is rapidly growing direction. Nevertheless, mobile and embedded AR still faces a lot of real-life problems and challenges. The talk will be devoted to review of AR principles and applications. The key part will contain the analysis of available technical solutions for mobile AR. Indeed, quite a lot of software engineers use the 3rd part frameworks (ARkit, ARcore, Vuforia, etc.) without putting enough attention into algorithmic and implementation details. In the presentation, we will consider the state-of-the-art algorithms for marker detection and recognition. Moreover, several fresh methods for real-time marker tracking will be discussed. In addition, such hot topics as markerless tracking, sensor fusion and SLAM will be covered as well. Finally, several real demos from custom mobile AR SDK will be shown.
