Title: Augmented Reality on sportive environment.

Speaker: Rui Pascoal, ISCTE-IUL PhD Student.



Augmented reality (AR) technology for use in outdoor sports environments presents chalenges. Information overload, difficulties of hands-free interactions and Internet requirements of AR is evaluated. Information to show for users must be adequated to the kind of sport activity, as well as, required functionalities.  The problem of information and communication overload is evaluated before implementing an AR system to be used specially to practice biking, walking or athletics.  An implementation of the AR prototype is performed, which shows the availability of all information and functionalities to end users, such as climatic, biometric, geolocation, and social data. The last goal is an AR framewok, which adapts to the environmental differences in resource access, and recognize complex activities. It also integrates an off-line automatic speech recognition for outdoor usage.
