How it started
Not rare are the situations in which the lack or inaccessibility of information becomes a stress factor in everyday life. If for a person who possesses all physical means this incommodity is easy to overcome, for a handicapped person this could represent a real challenge.

The system has been used for the first time at the "Zilele portilor deschise" event organised by the "Ovidius" University of Constanta, Romania.

One of the challenges that the development of the mixed reality environment poses is determining the position of the observer. This information needs to be extracted from the image taken with a camera. To resolve this issue, ARToolkit relies on computer-vision algorithms with which it can detect and recognize markers (the symbols are each associated with a 3D model inside the application). These algorithms are similar to those used by the artificial neural network technology in that of processing signals in general, and of images or sounds, in particular.

Augmented reality, interactive interface.
