Projects / BazAR


BazAR is an augmented reality library based on efficient computer vision techniques. It contains an easy to use geometric and photometric camera calibration system. It works in real-time with one or more cameras. A simple OpenGL GLSL shader augments the video stream by inserting artificial 3D objects, shaded with the calibrated lightmap, on a real surface. BazAR is based on a very fast textured planar object detector and features point classification trees.
