Urban bicycle navigation with Augmented Reality
The use of augmented reality to overlay navigation and traffic- relevant information on a pair of glasses in combination with routing, adapted to personal needs can make cycling in urban space safer and more efficient. As a result of dense and complex urban traffic, „weaker“ road users like cyclists are subjects of a higher risk of accidents compared to motorised vehicles. By turning away focus and attention from the transport scene towards a navigation device or smart phone this risk increases significantly. Bringing navigation instructions and traffic-relevant information direct in the cyclists field of view can minimize the risk.
My bachelor thesis project deals with a concept and design of an application for augmented reality glasses that allows bicyclists to find the optimal route and receiving navigation and traffic information during the movement without turning away the sight of the current transport business. Additionally safety hazards, that can not be caught by senses or perceived in time, can be pointed out.
