AR/VR Applications for engineering education

Broad Domain– B.E. in Electronics & Communication and Computer Science Engineering

Focused domain– Unity Developer (C sharp), Modeling/Animations in Autodesk Maya.

Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. We are working on developing teaching/learning aids for engineering education using Augmented /Virtual Reality.AR/VR learning/teaching aids are an important opportunity for enhancing education due to their ability to present realistic simulations of real-life situations and provide engaging user experience to students. It has been done to enhance the interactive learning skills in engineering education.
