Cloud Anchor, 3D reconstruction, Model Annotation, Augmented Reality


This study proposes an augmented reality-based three-dimensional model annotation system, integrating cloud anchors, three-dimensional reconstruction, and augmented reality technology to achieve explicit three-dimensional annotations on models. Employing an improved ORB algorithm, the annotated model is persistently anchored in three-dimensional space through cloud anchors, presenting accurate spatial information and showcasing the depth of scenes and relationships between elements. The system supports multiple data types for annotations, such as text and images. Through a comparison with traditional two-dimensional annotation in a drone experiment, the system demonstrates higher experimental efficiency, providing more intuitive annotation guidance and enhancing remote guidance efficiency and user understanding of drones.
