Abstract

What distinguishes our work is that we look at a multi-user collaborative environment that builds upon Augmented Reality technology to enhance user interaction with E&P software. The method we present centers around a sheet of paper where a QR-code is printed upon it. This then is directly linked to a central hub running the desired software; this in turn means that any manipulation to the sheet or from the central hub is directly visible to participants. The method for displaying the information should be through mobile devices, such as smart phones, tablets, or even Google Glass™, where it hovers on top of the sheet of paper respectively to the display device.

Redesigning the user interface for larger software applications with the use of modern design principles and user centric design

Introduction

In oil exploration and production applications, collaboration tools that allow for multiple user participations is either lacking or require several pieces of hardware. We suggest a more simplified method, where all the users can manipulate the data from a central hub that is then visible to all other participating users.

Detailed Description

This collaboration tool will involve a sheet of paper (or any other display) where a QR-code is present. The QR-code is directly linked to a central hub, in most cases a computer, where the desired software is running. The information is the...
