CS 598: Mobile Augmented Reality for Pedestrian Navigation

This course, taught by Illinois Alum and NAVTEQ scientists Matei Stroila in Spring 2011, concentrated on recent technology that facilitates the development of augmented reality pedestrian navigation applications: geo-referenced data (maps, LiDAR point clouds, panoramic images and depth maps, 3D models), smartphones (phone sensors: camera, GPS, accelerometer, compass), and graphics engines (OpenGL ES) to overlay relevant information in the viewfinder, and, more recently, vision engines that perform natural feature detection and tracking in the video data captured with the phone camera. This was a project-focused class. We built prototype applications for Nokia mobile phones using Commercial GIS/Map data and read and presented relevant papers, along with special presentations by Nokia and NAVTEQ guest speakers.
