  • We present a mobile augmented reality (AR) translation system, using a smartphone's camera and touchscreen, that requires the user to simply tap on the word of interest once in order to produce a translation, presented as an AR overlay. The translation seamlessly replaces the original text in the live camera stream, matching background and foreground colors estimated from the source images. For this purpose, we developed an efficient algorithm for accurately detecting the location and… CONTINUE READING
