LARA
LBS Augmented Reality Assistive System for Utilities Infrastructure Management through Galileo and EGNOS

Background & Objectives

The LARA project sets four objectives in developing a mobile solution for underground utility management that takes advantage of the Galileo and EGNOS:

  • Design, develop and exploit an entirely practical mobile device for utility field workers.
  • Make use and integrate mobile Augmented Reality (AR) interfaces. Registered visualisation requires the rendering of complex 3D models of the underground utilities infrastructure (water, gas, electricity, etc.) in an approach that is easily understandable and useful during field work.
  • Improve on site interaction and navigation application: Interaction with mobile AR devices in outdoor environments is a special mode of 3D interaction, which works differently from Virtual Reality (VR) systems, since it incorporates real-world objects and unavoidably incomplete (spatial) information.
  • Commercialize the final product and related services and address relevant markets.
