Mobile augmented reality requires accurate alignment of virtual information with objects visible in the real world. We describe a system for mobile communications to be developed to meet these strict alignment criteria using a combination of computer vision, inertial tracking and low-latency rendering techniques. A prototype low-power and low-latency(More)
Ray tracing is a powerful technique to generate realistic images of 3D scenes. However, the rendering of complex scenes may easily exceed the processing and memory capabilities of a single workstation. Distributed processing offers a solution if the algorithm can be parallelised in an efficient way. In this paper a hybrid scheduling approach is presented(More)
With the continuous improvement in ray tracing and radiosity algorithms, image synthesis quality has reached the level of photo realism. However, efforts to achieve real-time performances by implementing ray tracing and radiosity algorithms on parallel processors and dedicated hardware have not been very successful so far. Increasing the number of(More)
Parallelising ray tracing with a data parallel approach allows rendering of arbitrarily large models, but the inherent load imbalances may lead to severe inefficiencies. To compensate for the uneven load distribution, demand-driven tasks may be split off and scheduled to processors that are less busy. We propose a hybrid scheduling algorithm which brings(More)
