Edge-supported Augmented Reality for Visual Collaboration in Indoor Scenarios

Imperial Ballroom

First responders routinely make split-second decisions under stressful conditions. Easy access to information can alter the outcome in scenarios ranging from fire and medical rescue to combative persons. Attendees will see the latest prototype augmented reality (AR) applications designed for indoor scenarios that leverage sensors in AR headsets for localization and mapping as well as an edge computing platform for data exchange and processing. The demo will show how visual information can be shared between team members and displayed unobtrusively in an AR view for tasks such as viewing team member or objective locations on a map, navigating to a destination, and quickly identifying and annotating objects in the environment.
