Role of Automation in Robotics

Augmented Reality (AR) is a general-purpose term used for any view of reality where elements of that view are augmented with virtual imagery. Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology where the reality is augmented, enhanced with different types of virtual information. This information can be e.g. 3D models, text and images. With AR the user sees this information as an overlay on top of the real world. Unlike virtual reality where the user it totally immersed in the virtual world and cannot see anything but the virtual environment. To be able to place the overlay in the correct position the AR software can use different types of techniques. Some of these techniques are marker tracking, image recognition and the use of embedded sensors. Augmented reality (AR) creates an environment where computer generated information is superimposed onto the user’s view of a real-world scene.
