Student thesis: Masters ThesisMSc


Robots are increasingly becoming more common and found in social, work and even healthcare environments. Robots’ actions and reasoning are becoming more complex it is harder for humans to understand what the intentions or future actions of the robot are. Augmented reality is an emerging technology today, and during the last ten years it has seen a huge interest from a large number of industries and the academia. The rise of smartphones and the im- provements in mobile computing performance has allowed Augmented Reality to slowly become more mobile and affordable. This research project proposes that mobile augmented reality can be used to create a real-time feed of the robot’s AI and visualize it on a user’s mobile device thus improving trust between both and user’s perception about the robot, and radically increase transparency.
