Mobile Air Navigation with Augmented Reality

By Marko Troha

Abstract

The goal of this thesis is to create a tool for greater safety in general aviation, to help the pilot in orienting and navigating while flying, particularly in low visibility conditions. In order to enhance the practicality and usage of the implementation, the application is based on Android platform, which is present on the vast majority of today's electronic devices and already provides sufficient tools for orientation and determining the location of these devices (sensors such as GPS, magnetometer, accelerometer, as well as gyroscope). The application is designed to capture and process data from all these tools; it is based on the concept of augmented reality, where live image from the camera (also present on most electronic devices) represents background, which is then overlaid with key orientation and navigation points in aviation (airports, VOR and NDB beacons)
