Improving AR visualization with Kalman filtering and horizon-based orientation – To prevent boats to run aground at sea

  title={Improving AR visualization with Kalman filtering and horizon-based orientation – To prevent boats to run aground at sea},
  author={Tobias C Larsson},
This thesis researched the possibility of improving the compass of smartphones as the earth’s magnetic field is not strong and is easily disturbed, either by the environment or technology. The compass is used in Augmented Reality (AR) when the AR visualization should correspond to a position on earth. The issue lies in oscillating input values to the compass that reduces the AR experience. To improve the AR experience without the use of external equipment, this work tried to both filter the… 


Horizon based orientation estimation for planetary surface navigation
A horizon solution for precise rover orientation estimation is described, where the detected horizon in imagery provided by the on board navigation cameras is matched with the horizon rendered over the existing terrain model.
First steps towards handheld augmented reality
This paper describes the first stand-alone Augmented Reality system with self-tracking running on an unmodified personal digital assistant (PDA) with a commercial camera and introduces an optional client/server architecture that is based on wireless networking and is able to dynamically and transparently offload the tracking task in order toprovide better performance in select areas.
Pose Estimation for Augmented Reality: A Hands-On Survey
This paper aims at presenting a brief but almost self-contented introduction to the most important approaches dedicated to vision-based camera localization along with a survey of several extension proposed in the recent years.
Horizon Line Detection in Marine Images: Which Method to Choose?
Five algorithms designed to find a horizontal line separating sea and sky in marine images in real-life conditions were implemented in this work and compared by their performance: accuracy and

This paper introduces the attitude estimation method using the horizon from the image, and proposes an efficient algorithm based on OSTU to segment the image and use Hough transformation to detect the horizon line, so that the UAV's attitude is estimated more accurate.

A theoretical framework for generating pseudo spectra images (PSI) from spectrum analysis of XYZ color-space, at which wavelengths in the visible spectrum are identified, minimizes artifacts due to clouds in the sky, resulting in well defined horizon.
Algorithm for 3D orientation estimation based on Kalman Filter and Gradient Descent
This paper proposed a combined approach to fuse Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors via adaptive Kalman Filter considering practical recommendation of error covariance and associates orientation estimate using gyroscope viaKalman Filter with optimal instant attitude estimate of accelerometer and magnetometer using Gradient Descent.
A Kalman filter to estimate altitude change during a fall
The KF was able to differentiate between fall and non-fall activities, with the average measured pressure change during a fall of 8 Pa best determined using a delay in pressure equalization of 20 seconds.
