Augmented Reality

The interaction of superimposed graphics, audio and other enhancements over a real-world environment displayed in real-time. A key challenge in cyber-physical systems is that users often can’t see the cyber information they need in the real-world setting.

Retailers are currently experimenting with augmented reality to get more customers into the stores by allowing shoppers to 'see' the clothes on them without having to actually try them on.
