 Nikkan Construction Industry Newspaper

The Nikkan Kensetsu Kogyo Shimbun is a nationwide edition of specialized construction paper that deals with all information related to construction. Thanks to the support of everyone in the construction industry, including general contractors, we celebrated the 90th anniversary of the first issue last year. We will continue to disseminate a variety of industry news reliably and quickly.

Augmented reality

Augmented reality(This isBritish: Augmented Reality, Augmented Reality,AR) Is the real environment perceived by humansComputerA word that refers to the technology that is expanded by the computer and the actual environment itself that is expanded by the computer.

English Augmented Reality Because it is a Japanese translation ofpronunciationJapanese notation based onAugmented realityOr abbreviationARIs also used. Also,Augmented reality(Kakucho Genjikan),Augmented reality(Today),Augmented realityAlso called (elevation). As a superordinate conceptMixed reality There is (MR).


Augmented realityArtificial reality (Virtual reality = VR), which adds, deletes, emphasizes, and attenuates information in the surrounding real environment at that time, literally expanding the real world as seen by humans.[1].. Whereas virtual reality replaces reality with artificially constructed reality, augmented reality is a technique that modifies part of reality. For example, in virtual reality, people are presented with five senses as if they were in a virtual room and watching a virtual teapot placed on a virtual table, whereas in augmented reality the reality is that people actually exist. It presents information as if a virtual teapot is placed on the table in the room. Because computer information is added to enhance and augment the actual information than it is, and provide it to humansAugmented reality-Augmented realitySometimes called. In many cases, real-time processing is inevitably necessary because the real environment is used as an information source. As a technical problem, in addition to the virtual reality, it is a particular problem to solve the interaction between the virtual object and the real environment/object, such as illumination, shadow, contact, and concealment in the visual element.

As a means by which a computer expands reality, information presentation is attempted for all human sense organs and somatosensory, such as sight, hearing, and touch. In virtual reality, the reality of a virtual object presented to a person is emphasized, whereas in augmented reality, the relationship with the position of the real world or the context of an object is also emphasized. In a system that emphasizes the latter, a simple information presentation method may be used as a means for expanding the reality, such as a description of a place or an object by text or voice.

Many systems use devices or technologies that are widely used in virtual reality to present and obtain information. For example, mainly for visual information presentationHead mounted displayIs used. However, for the purpose of supporting work in a real environment, presentation using a screen of a small information terminal such as a mobile phone is also being considered.

Since the subject of the presented environment is the real environment, work support in the real environment is expected as its application field. For example, providing guidance information, providing technical information to technicians who maintain aircraft and copiers, and supporting surgery in the medical field.[2]Applied research such as information presentation for people is being conducted.

Similar ideas to augmented realityLyman Frank BaumeFirst stated in 1901 by. He devised an electronic device called a "character marker" that overlays and displays data created in the real world.[3].

In addition, as an example of the actual development of a device that realizes AR, in 1966Ivan Sutherlandby"Head mounted displayThe invention of "" has been made.

Armstrong in 1992Air Force Research LaboratoryLB Rosenberg has developed and demonstrated "Virtual Fixtures", the earliest working AR system.[6][7].

In 1992-93, a famous paper on the AR system prototype "KARMA" was published.[8].

In 2000, Bruce H. Thomas was the first outdoor mobile AR gameARQuake"International Symposium on Wearable ComputersWe made a presentation at and gave a demonstration.

Thus, with the exception of some entertainment prototypesMilitary industryAlthough AR has been mainly used in the automobile and aircraft manufacturing industries, it has been used for general consumer services in the 2000s with the spread of mobile terminals.[9].

It has become known to the general public since 2007 in Japan. The first commercial game that applied AR technology in the same yearTHE EYE OF JUDGMENTWas released.

2008 years,SmartphoneFirst public use of AR inlocation informationThe application "WikitudeWas released[10][11].. in JapanGPS Oflocation informationTo use "Sekai cameraWas released in 2009.

A system that displays images in the correct position and orientation by tracking the position and orientation of mobile phones with various sensors such as cameras, GPS, and acceleration sensors is an important technology for the realization of AR. Image recognition library for tracking for AR was released in 1999.ARToolKitIn 2003, by Dieter Schmalstieg and Daniel Wagner, mobile phonesPDAFirst marker tracking system was developed for[12].. Since QR codes have become widespread as image recognition markers for mobile phones in Asia, they have also come to be used for AR marker tracking.

As an example of a work using ARni_ka OfAR poetryThere is.

AR type

The technologies that realize AR are roughly divided into three types.[15]

Position expansion

Marker type

Markerless type



A method for projecting internal organs by augmented reality during surgery is under development[16][17].

Augmented reality in popular culture

The specific vision for using AR is "ス タ ー ト レ ッ クSuch asSFAppeared in[19].

One of the reasons for the publicity of AR technology in Japan is the animation "Tools similar to augmented reality".Cyber ​​coilSome people cite (2007)[20].. However, the augmented reality that appears in Denno Coil is not directly related to the actual AR technology.

In addition, there are many anime and manga in which "tools similar to augmented reality" appear before this work. For example, "ド ラ ゴ ン ボ ー ルA monocle-shaped display device that allows you to see the fighting power of your opponent.ScouterCan be said to be a kind of augmented reality[21].

in this way,SFProject augmented reality around the workHead mounted displayAnd other displays have appeared in many works. Many of them are monocle-shaped and are attached to communication headsets, probably because they describe the facial expressions of the characters. The projected information includes the distance from the enemy, the remaining ammunition of the weapon, and the aim.
