Abstrakt Abstract:

The mobile phone devices are still developing and
they are gaining more functionality and are able to deal
with more advanced tasks. One of the technologies
timidly trying to approach the mobile phone market is
the augmented reality, which does no longer require
external equipment to be formed in a programming
application. There is a limited number of sources trying
to describe the accuracy of augmented reality
applications implemented on mobile devices.

Within this study an application of augmented
reality visualising virtual models of buildings was
implemented on a mobile phone device in order to
evaluate the rate of the device explication. Several tests
were conducted to evaluate the application total
accuracy.

The implemented application was visualising
virtual models of the real existing buildings displaying
them in the same place the original buildings were. The
final position was calculated by the application and the
discrepancy of the view between the model and the real
building was measured. The results were gathered
revealing the application’s real accuracy.

For the purposes of this study the functional
application of augmented reality has been created. The
application was implemented on the mobile phone. The
results of the application formed the tables with final
measurements of accuracy. Also several photographs
were taken from the areas of the real existing buildings.

Transferring the functionality of augmented reality
from the external devices to mobile phones is possible
with some harm to the application accuracy. Visualising
building models is one of the possible extensions of the
mobile phone market. The improvements in Global
Positioning System would significantly improve the
application´s general accuracy.

Populärvetenskaplig beskrivning / Popular science summary: The augmented reality represents one of the most current approach in implementing the artificial reality. Primarily required large extensive head-mounted-displays now follows the trend of minimising the necessary equipment. The study shows how is it done that a single mobile phone can be used as a device creating a new reality and also answers what calculations are required by such a system setting the augmented environment. Also a problem of mobile phone’s augmented reality systems accuracy is developed in reference to the commonly proclaimed 2-metres inaccuracy of the GPS device.
