Immersive Technologies - Telefónica at Home

Description

Project focused on the development of a proof of concept to explore the possibilities of Augmented Reality, in order to facilitate the configuration and integration of the different devices that shape the digital home.

Interactive and immersive technologies such as augmented reality, offer the possibility of enriching the physical environment with a varnish of digital information, thus providing new experiences that can improve the development of both the daily life of people at home, as well as training or recreational activities.

AR has already been introduced into our daily lives through consumer devices such as mobiles and tablets. In this scenario of easy access to AR experiences for end users, it is timely to consider how to leverage these technologies to create seamless and natural interactions with devices in the digital home.

One of the main challenges in the digital home is the configuration of devices by end users and the resolution of problems that arise with the technology.

The project take a highly experimental, user-centered, iterative design approach to develop a proof-of-concept augmented reality application to recommend the optimal location of the WIFI router in the home.
