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
