ARTU (AR Tour for yoU)

The Campania Region, thanks also to the co-financing of the European Union and the Italian State, has invested in the creation and consolidation of innovative startups through the “Campania Start Up 2020” Public Notice, implementing Action “1.1.3 Support for the economic enhancement of innovation through experimentation and the adoption of innovative solutions in processes and products ”of the POR CAMPANIA FESR 2014 – 2020.
Among the initiatives financed by the aforementioned Notice is our project, called ARTU (AR Tour for yoU), with which we intend to extend the methods of use of the AR GLASSES by integrating different and innovative types of use and adding new cultural sites in the Campania region.
Our 3D glasses are customized with innovative software and used to reproduce, in Augmented Reality, the reconstruction of buildings and interiors overlapping the ruins. It represents an innovative offering tool that allows the enhancement and dissemination of the cultural heritage of the Campania Region.
To date, the project has reached about half of its time frame. The materials and basic components for the construction of the new 3D tours of the Campania sites were acquired. From here on, the finalization phase and the field test await us.
The implementation of the project was made possible thanks to the financial support received from the European Union, the Italian state and the Campania Region, as part of the POR Campania FESR 2014-2020.
