Augmented reality, computer vision, pattern recognition
We have studied the augmented reality, which is the technology to represent video images that do not exist in the real world just like they were real, by superimposing objects created using a computer on video images taken with a camera. In particular, we have been developing a system that can change, within an augmented reality space, features not so easy to change practically, such as patterns of sofas or table materials, wall colors, lighting color or location, by an analysis based on video images of the surrounded environment taken using a camera. On this purpose, we have studied techniques to determine the light properties, object shapes, and composing materials from video images.
