ARViz is an RViz implementation for Augmented Reality. This application runs inside the Microsoft Hololens AR device as a UWP application, without the need to use Ros Bridge. This project has as goal to combine:

  • TF2 support for ROS C#.
  • Secure communications.
  • Hololens Positioning in the scene.

This project uses the UWP port of ROS2 done by Esteve Fernández. You can have a look at the talk he gave at ROSCon 2018 about ROS2 for Android, iOS and UWP to understand the underlying code Video Slides.

This project is funded by ROSIN as a focused Technical Project.
