CERTAINTY IDENTIFICATION FOR AUGMENTED REALITY DISPLAYS WITH PEOPLE

ABSTRACT

A system combining real-time location system (RTLS) frameworks with facial

recognition enables the precise identification of endpoint users. This allows for a variety

of use cases in business settings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Advances in location technologies and open source facial recognition enable

"certainty" identification for augmented reality systems. Wireless location frameworks

provide for location accuracies of up to a few feet. For example, connected mobile

experience (CMX) systems with "hyperlocation" access points (APs) can obtain

approximately one meter resolution. This can determine the approximate locations of the

endpoints and the users operating these devices.

There are numerous business use cases that require "certainty" based systems with

augmented reality. Certainty in location technology would allow a user to view an

augmented information display of user data or data related to a user’s task in the context of

a video overlay or virtual reality display system.

As such, a two-tier system is provided. The general location may be obtained via

CMX technologies, and this information may be used to acquire a pool of targets within a

specific area. The area of interest may then be processed via facial recognition software to

map the endpoint user to the correct set of information. This information may be displayed

(e.g., overlaid) on a video stream for a "certain" augmented reality identification system.
