Simplifying Electronic Testing Environment with SLAM Based Handheld Augmented Reality System
- 47 Downloads
Current electronic testing measurements during embedded software development lack simultaneous multiple real-time measurements with location-specific information. To address this problem with a focus on electronic subsystem testing in the space industry an Augmented Reality (AR) solution is presented in form of a technology demonstrator. This Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) system based on the Handheld Augmented Reality (HAR) concept provides an affordable zero-time installation augmented reality system that blends simultaneously multiple real-time measurements displayed exactly where they are measured. The system is composed of a handheld device and so-called Smart Probes, or miniature Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices attached electronically to the measured specimen. This system may, with further development, become an alternative to a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a logic analyser.
