The research activities
of the AEL focus on understanding how to build interactive
computing environments that directly augment a user's
senses with computer generated material.
of our work can be refered to as Augmented Reality,
we prefer to use the term Augmented Environments
because it captures our interest in augmenting the
user's perception, and emphasizes our focus on the
interaction between the user and their environment.
Our interest lies at two levels:
understanding AE interfaces, and understanding the
software architectures and tools necessary to create
AE interfaces easily. Current projects in our lab
span computer graphics, HCI, computer systems and
software engineering, and design.
