In the time of this pandemic, we are currently going through a lot of problems regarding trainings and learning, especially in hardware. As we have to maintain social distancing, there are no institutions open where can can upskill ourselves. So, we have to depend on online learning platforms. But, we do not have access to any of the hardware sitting at home, so it's not possible to understand fully the working of a hardware machinery.
What it does
So, we have made an augmented reality based application which enables the users to interact with the object in 3D. The user can touch on any part of the 3D model and get the information written as well as in sound.
How I built it
We made it using Unity Engine and C# scripting.
Challenges I ran into
The challenge was to make it interactive and user friendly.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The UI is quite simple so that the learners do not get confused and are able to learn easily. The highlight feature enables the users to touch any part of the hardware and that particular part gets highlighted and the use and feature of the highlighted part is written on the screen as well as in sound. The user can zoom and see each and every part of the machine/tool they want to learn.
What I learned
I learned that teamwork is the key for success in any field. And being patient.
What's next for TrainAR
We can get accounts for users and also save the progress till where the user has completed or from where to start it.
