ARToolKit 2.72.1 is designed to build on Linux, Windows, Macintosh OS X, and SGI Irix platforms.
The augmented_reality Tool Kit (ARToolKit [artoolkit2.72.1.exe]) captures images from video sources, optically tracks markers in the images, and composites them with computer-generated content using OpenGL.
These are applications that involve the overlay of virtual imagery on the real world. For example, in the image to the right a three-dimensional virtual character appears standing on a real card. It can be seen by the user in the head set display they are wearing.
When the user moves the card, the virtual character moves with it and appears attached to the real object.
One of the key difficulties in developing augmented Reality applications is the problem of tracking the users viewpoint.
In order to know from what viewpoint to draw the virtual imagery, the application needs to know where the user is looking in the real world.
ARToolKit - 0MB uses computer vision algorithms to solve this problem. The ARToolKit 2.72.1 video tracking libraries calculate the real camera position and orientation relative to physical markers in real time.
This enables the easy development of a wide range of Augmented reality applications.
Ports of the library exist in the wild for Flash and Silverlight applications.
Most important functions of ARToolKit:
• Single camera position/orientation tracking.
• Tracking code that uses simple black squares.
• The ability to use any square marker patterns.
• Easy camera calibration code.
• Fast enough for real time AR applications.
• SGI IRIX, Linux, MacOS and Windows OS distributions.
• Distributed with complete source code.
• A simple framework for creating real-time augmented reality applications
• A multiplatform library (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, SGI)
• Overlays 3D virtual objects on real markers ( based on computer vision algorithm)
• A multi platform video library with multiple input sources (USB, Firewire, capture card) supported, multiple format (RGB/YUV420P, YUV) supported, multiple camera tracking supported, GUI initalizing interface
• A fast and cheap 6D marker tracking (real-time planar detection)
• An extensible markers patterns approach (number of markers fct of efficency)
• An easy calibration routine
• A simple graphic library (based on GLUT)
• A fast rendering based on OpenGL
• A 3D VRML support
• A simple and modular API (in C)
• Other language supported (JAVA, Matlab)
• A complete set of samples and utilities
• A good solution for tangible interaction metaphor
• OpenSource with GPL license for non-commercial usage
News in the current ARToolKit version:
All platforms:
bug fix: Removed VRML backgrounds which were still showing when using new OpenVRML-0. 16. 3.
• Bug fix: The bud_B VRML model does not render correctly with OpenVRML-0. 16. 3 and has been temporarily removed.
• Enhancement: Debug mode ('d' key) and threshhold adjustment ('+' and '-' keys) are now enabled in all gsub_lite-based examples.
Windows:
• Bug fix: Fix for issue which made video stream appear white in examples based on the old gsub library.
• Enhancement: added reading of environment variable ARTOOLKIT_CONFIG for DSVL video capture.
Linux:
• Bug fix: VideoLinuxV4L should now compile correctly on 64-bit x86 systems.
Mac OS X:
• Bug fix: A long-standing performance problem in the Mac video library has been addressed, allowing correct and optimal buffering of the video stream.
• Enhancement: ARvrml now links to fink-supplied OpenVRML-0. 16. 3 by default.
