Enabling context awareness, augmented reality and user-technology interaction
VTT methodologies help companies to increase the usability and user adoption of new services and technologies. An example of this is augmented reality libraries, which provide mobile phone and laptop camera pictures with data and 3D visualization.
Many successful mobile applications have been built around user location, yet
a multitude of other situation-related information is just waiting to be
harnessed. Enter VTT mobile context recognition technologies.
End users don’t always like new technologies and services well enough to adopt
them. VTT includes user input in formulating services and technologies in
order to lower the barrier for new technology adoption.
Augmented Reality is one of the most promising emerging mobile technologies.
With the Augmented Reality technology developed by VTT, companies can create
novel applications and services that enable users to interact with their
environment in completely new ways.
In recent years, human-computer interaction has seen a major shift towards
more natural user interfaces. VTT is at the leading edge of this with
technologies that enable user detection and use body gestures as inputs.
Efficient technologies can bring complex data visualization and collaborative social virtual worlds to life, even with the modest mobile and PC platforms of today. VTT is actively involved in several fields of technology development related to 3D visualization and graphics, collaboration in virtual and mixed environments, telepresence and tools for visual analytics.
