Abstract

Engineers often encounter difficulties in connecting digital data with its physical counterpart. This applies to processing and interpreting data as well as effectively communicating design ideas and considerations. Augmented reality has the ability to solve these problems by overlaying digital data on a physical object. This allows engineers to further explore design considerations such as ergonomics as well as communicate data such as, Finite Element Analysis. This communication may be realized in discussing and collaborating with colleagues, as well as to judges in design reviews. Augmented reality is beneficial in these cases and is further explored in this thesis, utilizing the 2019 Brigham Young University Mini Baja vehicle as a case study.
