Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This Innovation Pilot received a £5000 grant which brought together Teesside University with app developer, Spearhead Interactive and was further supported by Northumbria University. The purpose of the pilot project was to prototype and test a working concept for an Augmented Reality App.
The concept focused on an app that would recognise 'objects of interest' and overlay an enhanced image of the object on the object in order to enable sight impaired user interaction.
