The Parrot AR.Drone takes advantage of recent advances in many areas of technology, in particular Augmented Reality: the process of supplementing a real world environment with computer generated input, such as graphics or sound. In the case of the AR.Drone, computer generated sound and visuals are displayed on the users control device – usually an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android or Symbian smartphone.
Augmented Planet 2011 is all about natural feature tracking, visual search, face recognition and augmented reality browsers. If you have ever wondered how to implement these features into web or mobile applications, including the iPhone, iPad and Symbian or Android smartphones then AP2011 is the event for you.
