Early prototype

A TRL is a measure to indicate the matureness of a developing technology. When an innovative idea is discovered it is often not directly suitable for application. Usually such novel idea is subjected to further experimentation, testing and prototyping before it can be implemented. The image below shows how to read TRL’s to categorise the innovative ideas.

Augmented Reality (AR) enriches a user’s perception of the present reality. Relevant information can be provided in real-time and in-place to support and improve awareness, decision-making, experience sharing, training, and collaboration.


Engaging, unobtrusive, and user-friendly AR systems are developed for application in security, medicine, sports, and training contexts. Combined with serious gaming, they allow users to interact and co-create with each other while providing motivating, enjoyable and rewarding experiences.


The developed AR systems are currently evaluated in experiments with groups of actual users from the research partners and collaborating companies. The insights are used to create early prototype systems for real-life application.
