Augmented Reality application for interactive guided company tours
For AT&S we could develop and implement an iPad-based info guide system for interactive guided company tours in the context of erlebniswelt-wirtschaft.at.
The objective of the project realised in the framework of the area "Media Convergence and Interactivation" was to present the high-tech company AT&S accordingly innovative and attractive. AT&S The High Technology Experience was officially opened on October 5 2012 by Styrian province councillor Christian Buchmann, and has since been used intensely by visitor groups, potential customers, investors and employees. At every production stage the visitors retrieve the information interesting for them on their own. This is done by scanning the QR codes that are installed in the production halls with the iPad. With the evoGuide’s Augmented Reality functionality visitors can virtually cast a look into the production. They only need to direct the iPad at the machine and individual process steps are detailed on display with information graphics and explanations. Other production stages can be explained best by means of videos or photos. Visitors who have already attended the tour can later re-access and read up all contents on a web page.
Apart from interactive guided tours the evoGuide system lends itself for fields of application such as extraordinary trade fair presentations, new e-learning approaches, guided museum tours and architecture visualisations.
