PTC Reality Lab

We research the new, the uncharted, the possible next technologies.



Kinetic AR

Augmented reality can serve as a flexible medium to configure smart objects in our environment; however, objects are not always static. Kinetic AR is a new field of augmented reality research where we explore the programming of motion in physical space. We present a holistic user experience framework for visual programming of robotic motion systems in Augmented Reality. The Kinetic AR framework facilitates human-robot collaboration in a co-located environment. Our goal is to present a deployable guide for the creation and visualization of manifold robotic interfaces while maintaining a low entry barrier to complex spatial hardware programming.
