How to view the augmented reality posters? - ARstudio

код для вставки
AR Studio is an Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) funded project developed by a team from the
University of Canberra, the Australian National University (ANU) and Macquarie University.
In this project we are developing effective uses of augmented reality in an educational context,
together with tools for mapping its uptake and evaluating its effectiveness. This includes a collection
of developed practice models, illustrating interactive, pedagogically driven uses of augmented reality
for learning.
How to view the augmented reality posters?
Download the free �AR Studio’ app from iTunes on your iPhone/iPad or Google Play for your Android device.
Alternatively you can use the �Aurasma Lite’ app by subscribing to our channel which you can find by searching
for �UC Research Festival’ from within Aurasma.
Open the app and point your tablet/phone camera at any of the research posters with the AR Studio logo to
view the researchers talking about their project.
Video is generally 1-3min. The image quality is adjusted automatically depending on the speed of your internet
connection. Double tap the video to view it full screen and be able to move away from the poster.
Troubleshooting: The augmented reality is accessed through image recognition and has been calibrated for the versions of the posters
we printed for the UC Research Festival 2012. If the app is having trouble recognising the poster hold your camera closer so that it fills
the screen. It usually works better on printed versions, although it generally works fine on the screen too.
The Art of Data
At first glance, the small cup looks
like a beautiful piece of art, but when
examined closer you can tell there’s
more to it than meets the eye.
It represents 150 years of Sydney
temperature data, all stacked up
chronologically to represent how
climate has changed. The cup expands
slightly towards the rim, which
physically shows the warming trend of
recent decades.
The “measuring cup” is just one of
digital design associate professor
Mitchell Whitelaw’s research projects
on the visualisation of datasets.
The Not So Fantastic Mr. Fox
The red fox, considered an environmental
vandal who preys on native species, had not
arrived to the coasts of Tasmania...or so it was
However, a University of Canberra team of
scientists led by Professor Stephen Sarre has
been able to confirm the presence of foxes
in the island. The team has developed a test
that identifies fox DNA in animal traces. More
than 7,000 scats have already been collected
and sent to the University’s Trace DNA lab
-one of the most advanced in its type- for
their analysis, as part of the effort to eradicate
foxes from Tasmania.
Sex in Dragons
A team of researchers at the University
of Canberra is focusing on unraveling the
mystery surrounding sex determination
in dragons and other reptiles, which
seems to be controlled by both, genes
and temperature, rather than one or the
Using advanced DNA technology, the
team of Professor Arthur Georges, Dr
Tariq Ezaz and Professor Stephen Sarre
will explore the astonishing diversity in
modes of sex determination in reptiles.
Mobiles, new farming tool
Cambodian farmers are turning
to mobile phones to increase their
crop production and profitability.
Thanks to education professor
Robert Fitzgerald’s research, mobile
phones are providing farmers
with immediate access to price
information, market performance
and weather forecasts, helping them
to make better decisions regarding
their crops.
With a strong background in
education, social psychology and
information systems, Professor
Fitzgerald’s research over the last
25 years has focused on applying
technology to solve educational and
social problems.
Unmasking Depression
Using “affective computing” –which is the
recognition, interpretation and expression of
emotions by a computer – University of Canberra
researcher Dr Roland Goecke and colleagues are
working towards providing an objective new tool
to detect the signs of depression.
Their research aims to develop video technology
for the analysis of facial expression, speech and
physiology to advance the diagnosis and the
measurement of progress in the treatment of
major depressive disorders.
This would represent a major breakthrough
in overcoming current diagnostic limitations,
eventually allowing patients to monitor their
own illness with an easy to use system that only
requires a properly equipped laptop computer.
Unequal Opportunities
Australian children who grow up in low-income
households with unemployment and poor housing
and access to services might be at risk of being
disadvantaged not only now but also in adulthood.
Thanks to ARC funded research by a team of
investigators from the University of Canberra’s
National Centre for Social and Economic
Modelling (NATSEM), these risks of “social
exclusion” have been identified, highlighting
areas where new policies to promote stronger
families, communities, educational support
and access to new technologies could make a
Dr Anne Daly and colleagues have developed an
index of risk of social exclusion that is currently
made up of five domains of potential disadvantage:
socio-economic, education, connectedness, health
and housing. This index has been incorporated
into government policy.
DNA Draws a Portrait
Forensic scientist Dennis McNevin and colleagues
are exploring how DNA found at a crime scene
could be used to build a physical description of an
DNA present in samples collected in relation to
criminal activities has the potential to provide
physical characteristics of the donor in the same
way as an eyewitness statement can be used to
make a facial reconstruction.
Being able to determine these physical traits that
can be derived from the analysis of DNA obtained
at a crime scene will provide an invaluable tool for
those involved in criminal investigations.
Connecting communities
A team of community development experts at
the University of Canberra is collaborating with
other researchers to help develop dairy, mango
and citrus production and marketing in Pakistan,
thanks to a $1.4m grant from the Australian
Centre for International Agricultural Research
The team, including Professors John
Spriggs, Barbara Chambers and Dr Sandra
Heaney-Mustafa, has started work on rural
development, community engagement and better
communication between the existing research
teams and helping local people make better use of
Saving the �platypus’ of turtles
One of the most unusual turtles in the world, the
pig-nosed turtle, has a better chance of survival
thanks to research undertaken by the University of
Canberra and the Papua New Guinea Institute of
Biological Research.
This species, considered “the platypus of the
turtle world” since it’s the last remaining kind of a
once widespread family of turtles, is threatened by
change to its habitat and local harvesting.
Supported by the PNG Liquefied Natural Gas
Project, the research team is working with
the local community to address the issue of
sustainable harvest and with landowners to
establish protected beaches to help boost turtle
