Pseudo Eye: An Interactive Augmented Reality Assistant App for Electronic Engineering Students


Author(s): Eman Daraghmi1 , Rami Yousuf 2

In this paper, PseudoEye, an interactive technician assistant application for electronic engineering students is presented. This application meets the highest standards and provides the most rewarding environments for users seeking technical assistant when using electronic components, such as timer, microcontroller, transistor, etc. PseudoEye provides to mobile users equipped with a smart phone visual interaction, image-based visual search, augmented reality, and personal 3d technician assistant. PseudoEye shows a complete description about any electronic component scanned by a smart phone as well as it illustrates how the scanned component can be wired in a complete electronic circuit. All of these functionalities will be provided via Augmented Reality. Augmented Reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computergenerated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. Moreover, “clickable” or “touchable” property is supported by our proposed App as it allows for visual interaction with the detected component, and used for information retrieval. PseudoEye was tested in Palestine Technical University as one of the assistant technologies in basic electronic classes to be used later in an intelligent class environment.
