VRinMotion: Use of Augmented Reality in the furniture industry

  • 2010-2012

    The architects conceive the interior visual aspect of a house based on sketches and drawings. These drawing schemes are perfectly understandable by technicians that are responsible for their implementation, but to the client, most of the time, they seem somewhat unrealistic and ungraspable in terms of visual model. This issue is especially sensitive when the inner components are actually pieces of different kinds of furniture and other decoration stuff. The ideal situation should be to offer the client a preview of what is designed to decorate his home and even better, to be able in real-time, to make changes in some of the design details and previewing the results.

    The VRINMOTION is a configurable and modular platform that uses the augmented reality technology to visualize the objects (virtual 3D models) in real world environments, with or without marks. It is a portable system, composed by integrated pieces of software and hardware, to be used in a domestic, industrial or/and commercial context.

    The VRINMOTION aims to create a marketing tool that will allow the traditional furniture industry to show in 3D their products to the final client, simulating, positioning and visualizing them in loco via an augmented reality based approach.
