Summary:
A Spanish research Group with a wide information and communication technology (ICT) industry collaboration experience at Embedded Electronic Systems for e-Health sectors, has developed and designed a new Augmented Reality Vision system for embedded systems. It is guided by pointing gesture recognition and is focused on e-health and medical sector operation. Group is offering a knowledge transfer and project collaboration of the mentioned system to set up a technological cooperation agreement
Description:
At present, the great majority of current Augmented Reality (AR) applications are built using general purpose processors as development platforms where the processing tasks are executed in software. However, software execution is not always the best solution for the high intensive requirements of the many processing tasks involved in AR, and it inevitably constrains frame rate and latency, which compromises real time operation, and magnifies size and power consumption, hindering mobility.

Since there are many situations in industries where workers can not operate using hands and need a fast gesture interface to see and map information in real time in a AR fashion, a Spanish research group with a wide information and communication technology (ICT) experience at Embedded Electronic Systems for e-Health sector, has developed and designed a new Augmented Reality Vision system for embedded systems.

The Augmented Reality (AR) applications developed are based on Field-programmable Gate Array (FPGA) platoform. This system is characterized by the following features:

- Frame grabber. With the aim of processing video it has been developed a frame grabber which accepts standard analogue video signal, converts it into digital and stores it in memory.
- General purpose of the user interface is to give flexibility and versatility, and to ensure fast re-design of the hardware architecture for enhanced or new applications. The core is made up of hardware components and software functions in different levels. Thanks to the core it is possible to present text information in a Video Graphic Array (VGA) monitor to the user, who can navigate through menus, select options and configure parameters by means of a pointer device. So, it provides the flexibility of adapting the systems to the user requirements or preferences allowing:
- Display of text and text fonts
- A pointing device. Including gesture recognizing techniques
- Generation of video signals. The platform can generate signals for displaying video on monitors and analogical screens. The generation of the synchronization and RGB signals for a VGA monitor is carried out by the VGA generator module, which can be configured to generate different resolutions.

The research group has successfully validated the usefulness of the described platform in an application for people affected by a visual disorder known as tunnel vision. It consists in the loss of the peripheral vision, while retaining clear and high resolution central vision. It is like looking through a keyhole.

Therefore, the developed system allows not only display of text and images but also can give workers new vision control of many camera features. For example: zoom in, zoom out , focus, face recognition,... and in case of special cameras it can be adapted to infrared ,thermal or other kind of vision systems.

Concerning end-user applications, they are wide and the research group expects that will be fostered with the deployment of several light AR glasses nowadays, already in prototype, like Google´s.

The research group is offering a knowledge transfer and project collaboration of the mentioned system, in order to close a technological cooperation agreement.






Advantages and Innovations:
Compared to traditional solutions of current Augmented Reality (AR) applications are built using general purpose processors as development platforms where the processing tasks are executed in software. However, software execution is not always the best solution for the high intensive requirements of the many processing tasks involved in AR, and it inevitably constrains frame rate and latency, which compromises real time operation, and magnifies size and power consumption, hindering mobility.
