Abstract
The aim with this thesis is to investigate the possibilities to use Augmented Reality (AR) in surveillance systems. The thesis will examine ideas suited for network based cameras but also other devices such as a head mounted display (HMD). AR today is mainly used in smartphones as entertainment and therefore the approach to use AR in surveillance systems will cover new areas.

The project will be divided into several steps including investigation, design, tool-evaluation and implementation. Investigation includes numerous brainstorming sessions and research along with storyboards and scenarios. The investigation will lead to a product to be designed and implemented in a selected platform. To design the application, a Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi... (More)

As a result, a final application was implemented on the platform Android which uses Google Maps as an overview of the camera system. All the cameras are viewed in different manners and in the image, the enhanced AR information is applied to increase the information output and orientation. Axis Communications network cameras where used in the application. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka möjligheterna att använda Augmented Reality i övervakningssystem. Arbetet kommer att utforska idéer anpassade för nätverkskameror men även andra anordningar såsom en head mounted display. Idag används AR huvudsakligen i smartphones som
underhållning, vilket innebär att det här projektet kommer leda in AR till nya områden inom övervakning.


Projektet är uppdelat i flera steg: utredning, design, utvärdering av verktyg och till sist implementering. Utredningen innehöll brainstormingsessioner och forskning som tillsammans med storyboards och användarfall gav en helhet. Till sist definierades en produkt som skulle utformas och genomföras på en utvald plattform. Vid designfasen skapades en... (More)

Projektet är uppdelat i flera steg: utredning, design, utvärdering av verktyg och till sist implementering. Utredningen innehöll brainstormingsessioner och forskning som tillsammans med storyboards och användarfall gav en helhet. Till sist definierades en produkt som skulle utformas och genomföras på en utvald plattform. Vid designfasen skapades en Lo-Fi-prototyp för att undersöka om testpersonerna använde systemet som avsett. Lo-Fi- prototypen gav även ytterligare feedback till ett bättre system.

Som ett resultat av alla steg har en slutlig applikation skapats till plattformen Android. Applikationen använder Google Maps för att för att skapa en översikt i kamerasystemet. Bilderna som kamerorna visar är förstärkta med AR, vilket förbättrar bildinformationen samt ger en bättre orientering än tidigare. (Less)
