ARIM01 allows the MCH to use Augmented Reality to fill the gap between the visitors and the artefacts with interactive stories and visualisations.
The ARIM01 application was developed for an Android tablet, but we also successfully tested it on Android phones. The structure of ARIM01 is also a good framework to develop for use on an IPhone and/or IPad.
There are several solutions to use image targets in difficult conditions. We found the most effective solutions in the area of soft- and hardware. The application recognizes the image target from different distances and this is a very good result given the difficult circumstances.
The content and design used in ARIM01 is for test purposes only. The design (interface) is generic as there is no design guide for the new museum at the moment. The content is limited and developed to a level where it can be used as test for the projectgroup working with the new museum, and possible some controlled testing with visitors. The content is limited to work with the chosen object “Billedteppene - fragment 1-2”.
Here you can see a video of the ARIM01 AR experience. ARIM01 recognized the “Bildeteppene” (but only the “Bildeteppene” and always responded! It does not respond to other objects. ;-). This is a great success! Soft- and hardware are perfectly streamlined.
