Forked:A Demonstration of Physics Realism in Augmented Reality
Beaney, David; Mac Namee, Brian
In making fully immersive augmented reality (AR) applications, real and virtual objects will have to be seen to physically interact together in a realistic and believable way. This paper describes Forked! a system that has been developed to show how physical interactions between real and virtual objects can be simulated re- alistically and believably through appropriate use of a physics en- gine. The system allows users control a robotic forklift to manipu- late virtual crates in an AR environment. The paper also describes a evaluation experiment in which it is shown that the physical inter- actions between the forklift and the virtual creates are realistic and believable enough to be comparable with the physical interactions between a forklift and real crates.
