Title: AUGMENTED REALITY DISPLAY REFLECTIVE OF VISIBILITY AFFECTING FEATURES IN REAL-WORLD ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
Method and system for displaying augmented reality reflective of environmental features affecting visibility. Characteristics of a virtual object to be displayed on view of scene is determined. Environmental features affecting visibility along a line-of-sight from scene origin to virtual object are detected. When detected feature is at least one non-obstructing feature, its effect on visibility is determined, and virtual object is displayed superimposed onto view of scene such that appearance of virtual object is consistent with determined effect on visibility. When detected feature includes an amorphous obstructing feature, its range and contour is determined, and obstructed portions of virtual object is determined based on difference between range of virtual object and range of amorphous obstructing feature, and virtual object is displayed superimposed onto view of scene such that determined obstructed portions of virtual object appear obstructed in displayed view.
