AUGMENTED WORLD EXPO 201427-29 May 2014 - Santa Clara, California
Augmented World Expo (AWE), the world’s largest augmented reality tradeshow, brings together top innovators in AR, wearable computing, digital eyewear, gesture and sensors devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT). IEEE-SA will support City Visions, an open challenge for AR being held in conjunction with AWE 2014.
Open and Interoperable AR Workshop27 May 2014 1:30 - 5:30 PM EDT
Open and interoperable Augmented Reality tools will provide publishers the largest audiences (aka reach) and users with the most variety of experiences, without sacrificing choice of AR-enabled players. Workshop details
IEEE City Visions ExperienceCity Visions is an open challenge for augmented reality developers to think critically about the future of augmented urban landscapes and, in doing so, design working proof of concept applications. We invite you to work as futurists and use the provided composite mural image as the tracking target, and the canvas upon which you will build your augmented experience. The challenge is particularly focused on augmented visions of the future city in the areas of architecture, transportation, and art. However, this is a crowd-sourced campaign designed to draw from the wisdom, creativity, and insight of the collective, so please feel free to push the envelope in terms of meaningful and interesting ways that the future digital city may emerge. Learn more about City Visions
Using mobile AR technology, the IEEE City Visions experience will demonstrate how IEEE 802 standards create the underlying technological framework of the connected city. When holding the mobile device up to the City Visions composite mural, the user becomes the “connected person” and can then view and interact with how 802 standards are interwoven into the fabric of a wired city.
