Abstract:
Textual didactics, used in museums and galleries provide access to historical, socio-political, technical, and biographic information about the artworks and artists. These types of didactics are considered to be cost-effective. However, they do not enable the use of audio, video, and Web interface that allows for multiple forms of usage for the museum visitors. We have developed a smartphone application, called Musing, for interaction of museum visitors with informational content and enhancement of their museum experience. Musing is an augmented reality (AR) application that enables the visitor to capture an artwork with a smartphone camera. Using image processing, the application recognizes the artwork and places graphical user interface objects in the form of Points of Interest (POIs) onto the image of the artwork displayed on-screen. These POIs provide the visitor with additional didactic information in the form of text overlays, audio, video, and Web sites. The Musing application and administrator Web site, described in this paper, is designed with several performance and efficiency goals, including high reliability and recognition rate, high usability, and significant flexibility. The application is designed to be adaptable to a variety of museums and galleries without requiring special hardware or software. Furthermore, the administrative interface enables museum staff to provide content for the didactics without requiring software development skills.
