With the confluence of various technologies in the 21st century - underpinned by AI, the principles of human-machine interaction, data analysis and modelling - the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) plays an important role in business, education and entertainment. This unit introduces students to AR/VR technology and its appropriate use in data analysis and for the communication of information. AR/VR take traditional media types (images, videos, text, audio) and interaction scenarios into a new medium for applications in data science, engineering, IT, education, marketing, healthcare, entertainment and many more. This unit provides hands-on experience in developing and applying AR/VR technology for a range of real-world scenarios. Students will gain both an understanding of the theoretical foundations as well as practical experience in implementing and using AR/VR technology on industry-related examples.
This unit will be co-taught with 11519 AR/VR for Data Analysis and Communication PG.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Select and apply suitable AR/VR techniques to visualise and communicate information;
2. Demonstrate competency in using AR/VR technology to analyse complex data;
3. Understand, describe and critique AR/VR technology for a variety of application scenarios; and
4. Design and implement interactive AR/VR solutions based on advanced human-machine interface principles.
Four hours of problem-based learning activities/interactive workshops/practical work in laboratory classes on campus per week.
Must have passed 48 credit points.
Working knowledge of programming (e.g. scripting languages), discrete mathematics, algebra and numerical analysis.
