Visual-Inertial Tracking for AR and VR

Tuesday, May 22, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Summit Track: 
Mission City Ballroom M1-M3

This tutorial covers the main current approaches to solve the problem of tracking the motion of a display for AR and VR use cases. We will cover methods for inside-out tracking that use cameras and inertial sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, for both wearable head-mounted displays and for handheld devices such as cell phones.
