Augmented reality for visualization of architectural design
We present the rendering engine of a design review system which is developed in the EU project IMPROVE. It is tailored to Augmented Reality review scenarios. Application scenarios include design review in the architectural domain as well as in the automotive industry. We describe the techniques we employ for rendering as well as steps towards realistic material acquisition. These techniques include High Dynamic Range Imaging, Image Based Lighting, Precomputed Radiance Transfer and Approximate Bidirectional Texture Functions.
