We would like to share our preliminary results on the AR visualization for ROS enabled robots using Android devices including smart glasses (e.g Epson Moverio).
The project makes use of the Vuforia engine, and currently we are working on porting our solution to ROS2.
The current demo was tested on both Epson BT-200 smart glass and Samsung Tab A6 and a number of different types of robots including AGVs (Pioneer 3), UAVs (ArDrone2) and robot arms (Cyton Gamma 1500) as well, but they are intended to work on different robot platforms as well.
In our first demo you can visualize with an Android enabled AR device the list of nodes which should be running on your robot. The recognition of the robot can be done either by associating a QR code or by training the visual model of your robot using the Vuforia object scanner.
The project is still under development, but you can access it here:
