RPT(Retroreflective Propeller Display):再帰性投影ヘッドアップディスプレイ

The head up display (HUD) is becoming increasingly common in the aerospace field because it has many benefits such as enabling operations in poor visibility and improving flight safety. The HUD is a kind of augmented reality display that enables a pilot to observe the scene outside the cockpit while simultaneously viewing an artificial image of flight information. However, the HUD is too expensive and heavy for light airplanes. In this paper, we propose a new method to combine real and artificial images using Retro-reflective Projection Technology and rotating objects, and we apply the method to an airplane with a single propeller to compose a simple HUD. In this report,

SmartTool: 触覚のオーグメンテッドリアリティ(Haptic AR)

Previous research on augmented reality has been mainly focused on augmentation of visual or acoustic information. However, humans can receive information not only through vision and acoustics, but also through haptics. Haptic sensation is very intuitive, and some researchers are focusing on making use of haptics in augmented reality systems. While most previous research on haptics is based on static data, such as that generated from CAD, CT, and so on, these systems have difficulty responding to a changing real environment in real time. In this paper, we propose a new concept for the augmented reality of haptics, the SmartTool. The SmartTool responds to the real environment by using real
