Project title: Accurate and Timely Absolute Location for Augmented Reality Mobile Applications
Mentor: Joel Hollingsworth
This semester has been a great success in terms of my Lumen Project. Over the course of last summer, I fully developed a PDR assisted GPS location system. I spent the majority of this semester perfecting the system. I played a lot with the filtering in attempts to determine a high and low accuracy limit to match a percentage of how much to use the raw GPS data versus the data collected from the sensors. The location system has since been integrated into the Catching Fireflies game code. The game now runs with smoother visuals than ever before. After adding an option to calibrate the accelerometer, our app will be complete and ready for the Google Play Store.
