Mizzou Engineer studying augmented reality to bring coursework to life
Augmented reality (AR) has the potential to bring coursework to life. Imagine, for instance, learning about supply chains by seeing the various components of an operation laid out in front of you, from the manufacturing…
Augmented reality system uses GPS to improve user experience
Mizzou Engineers have developed a more advanced augmented reality system that uses indoor GPS tracking to better position objects with the user’s physical space.
Students Explore Virtual Reality Applications in VR Lab
About a dozen students from across campus got to experience various applications of virtual reality during a field trip to the VR Lab at Mizzou Engineering yesterday. Fang Wang, an assistant teaching professor in the Information Technology Program, and several of her students demonstrated the technology through projects they’ve worked on over the past couple of years.
