Mobile augmented reality applications require various virtual contents to augment real scene. It is time-consuming and complicated to design and develop specified virtual 3D scene for each augmented reality application. To develop a scene authoring toolkit for developers is urgent. The project will develop a scene editor for developers to fast design and develop virtual scene for augmented reality applications in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get way. The toolkit will provide basic objects and elements to deploy the virtual scene. Developers are able to align virtual contents with real objects in a natural way. The virtual scene is configured visually and then parsed for further use in the development of augmented reality system.
Applicants will design the basic functions of the authoring tool. They will also be responsible for the development and implementation of the authoring tool. Solid programming skill with Android platform and OpenGL programming on mobile platform are a plus.
From this project, applicants will broaden their views in the field of mobile computing and 3D rendering. They will also gain professional suggestions on how to do research and implement their ideas, which will be a good start for their job or academic careers.
