Light-weight Augmented Realityon-the-go
Abstract: Over 0.2% of all bicycle accidents that take place are caused by the cyclist removing their vision from the road by looking at their cellphone, watch, or cyclocomputer. By giving immediate and direct admittance to information associated within a user's view of the real world, Augmented Reality has the possibility to reshape and define the way information is accessed and displayed. By reading and analyzing scientific articles and empirical studies around Augmented Reality and cycling we got a good understanding of how the problem could be approached and how a solution could be designed. This thesis has developed and implemented an adaptive graphical user interface for a head-mounted display that shows relevant information for cyclists. This information was designed so that the user can easily grasp the content and avoid collisions by having his/her focus on the road, thus increasing safety.
