Recognizing and Tracking Outdoor Objects by Using Artoolkit Markers


Blagoj Nenovski and Igor Nedelkovski, University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, North Macedonia


We created an augmented reality platform for spatial exploration that recognizes buildings facades and displays various multimedia for different time points. In order to provide the user with the best user experience fast recognition and stable tracking are the key elements of any augmented reality app. In an outdoor environment, lighting, reflective surfaces and occlusion can drastically affect the user experience. In a setup where these conditions are similar, marker creation methodology and the app parameters are key. In this paper we focus on resizing the photo prior marker creating and the importance of camera calibration and resolution and their effect on the recognition speed and quality of tracking outdoor objects.
