iOS 5 Sensor Programming: Augmented Reality and Location Embedded iPhone and iPad Apps

Although developers have covered a lot of topics and activities with more than 725,000 apps for iOS devices, they have yet to tap the riches of location-based and augmented reality applications. This book shows you how to use iPhone's sensors – the three-axis accelerometer, GPS, digital compass, and camera – to build cutting-edge location-aware apps that interact with the physical world. You can easily access iPhone's sensors, but interpreting the data you get back from them is tricky. Harder still is combining the input from several sensors with outside data sets.

Open Day 2011

In collaboration with Sander Veenhof, the AR Lab made a layar-based event for our visitors, students and student candidates. With iPhone or Android they were able to collect virtual dogs... Sander Veenhof, Wim van Eck and Yolande Kolstee had three brainstorming sessions with students from IMD and ArtScience. Alicja Marcinek made the dogs, Varun Vachhar made the instruction video and Ivan Henriques contributed to the concept.
