Augmented Reality Application
The « Twizzy », Renault’s small electric car, is on display in the showroom of CEA Tech, CEA’s technological research department. CEA Tech’s mission is to produce and disseminate technologies for the benefit of industry, providing a « bridge » between the scientific and economic worlds.
In order to highlight the Twizzy’s technologies, CEA Tech commissioned Sonovision Group and IHMTEK, in early 2019, to create an augmented reality application showing each of its features.
The objective of this project is to create an augmented reality application that allows the user to visualise the various functions of Twizzy. Using a tablet, the user points the tablet’s camera at the car and points of interest appear depending on the part of the car being viewed. If the user clicks on one of these points, videos or other information appears. In addition, when pointing at the car, the 3D model of the Twizzy appears transparently on the real model, giving a very high-tech visual effect.
Sonovision Group designed the application’s graphic interface and IHMTEK developed the augmented reality application.
