Augmented Reality Framework for the Socialization between Elderly People
Luis Almeida (Institute of Systems and Robotics, Portugal), Paulo Menezes (Institute of Systems and Robotics, Portugal), and Jorge Dias (Institute of Systems and Robotics, Portugal)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-3986-7.ch023
Abstract
The socialization between elderly people assumes a key role on their mind and body well-being while loneliness expects to be one of major problems of our increasing age society. This research aims to study and develop a framework to support elderly people socialization when they are confined to their homes for some reason. It can be also adequate for people following some neurological or physical rehabilitation treatment remotely or monitoring behaviors in order to prevent potential diseases. This work proposes a framework that supports the socialization through Augmented Reality (AR) based on telepresence. The aim is a low cost solution that enables users to communicate and interact remotely, experiencing the benefits of a face-to-face meeting. The authors explore computers graphics, spatial audio, and artificial vision to induce sensations of being physical in the presence of other people and exploit the potential activities that such frameworks enable. TV and phones are elderly common companion devices that should be complementarily used with emergent AR technologies to enhance and create the remote presence feeling, minimizing the loneliness. Inspired by Virtual Reality (VR) studies, one of the authors’ goals is to explore if VR presence measurement instruments are useful in the AR context by reviewing literature on the area.

Using Advanced Approaches in Urban Design Researches: A Mutation from 3D Digital Models to Virtual Reality
It can be defined as a medium composed of interactive computer simulations that sense the participant's position and actions and replace or augment the feedback to one or more senses, giving the feeling of being mentally immersed or present in the simulation (a virtual world). In virtual environments, participants are immersed and surrounded by information, which is to scale and, which is 3 dimensional. The interface is very intuitive to use for exploring virtual environments because it is tightly coupled to the way people explore real environments. Because of the specific attributes of virtual interfaces, people develop a sense of actually being somehow present inside the model. And with this sense of presence, viewers could potentially, for the first time, perceive the modeled spaces as they would the real spaces.

Ubiquitous Bodies: A “Metrobodily” Transition From Real to Virtual
It applies the progress in speed computing, graphics display, sensor sciences, and programming techniques in order to provoke in a participant an immersive experience inside a computer-generated space that we call a virtual world. Virtual worlds may or may not be analogous to our physical space; virtual environments may be realistic, extrasensory, telepresent or hybrid. The sensation of immersion is accomplished by peripheral devices wearable on the head such as visual and auditory displays with motion trackers.
