Most Augmented Reality applications deal with very restricted and constrained environments. The goal of the AERIAL CROWDS project is to take Augmented Reality out of the laboratory and into a real urban environment, where it can be used to virtually add or remove buildings and crowds. Virtual crowds will be customized by selecting from a variety of realistic behaviors and appearances.
Following items are the main research plan of MIRALab:
Rich diversity of population generation will be handled by using 3D body scanners.
Postprocess the raw scan data to construct the virtual model.
Mesh simplification with different LODs for desired crowd individual generation
