New applications

Abstract : This chapter gives an overview of the new families of applications that have emerged or that have undergone massive development in the past over few years. It first analyzes the manufacturing industry, exploring the development of virtual reality (VR), the emergence of augmented reality (AR) and the question of return on investment. The chapter looks at recent results in the field of training and in the field of heritage. It discuss the AR techniques that can potentially visually enrich information through a fusion of intraoperative images and preoperative data (e.g. images, virtual 3D models), which help guide the surgeon during the operation. The chapter further presents a few examples of VR being used in the context of learning in the field of surgery. It examines applications related to city life, architecture and urbanism and focuses especially on developing mobility.
