Visual odometry is achieved via various approaches.

A video stream of people within a venue like a movie theater is received. The people within the video stream are analyzed. Based on analysis of the people within the video stream, virtual content is overlaid onto the video stream. The video stream, with the virtual content overlaid thereon, is then displayed onto a screen within the venue. As such, the virtual content and one or more of the people within the venue can appear to be interacting with one another as if the virtual content were real and present within the venue.

Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). Therefore, there exists a significant need to introduce vehicle stability enhancement technology to military vehicles. Quantum Signal has initiated development of a low cost vehicle stability enhancement system, dubbed VSS+, that is applicable to a wide range of legacy vehicles of varying size and type. VSS+ will provide information to the operator (or onboard control systems) on vehicle stability in real time, and will have both reactive and predictive capabilities. It will be intended as an add-on functionality for retrofitting existing vehicles, and use standardized interface architectures and protocols. The primary objective of previous Phase I work by Quantum Signal was to investigate the feasibility of the VSS+ system and to demonstrate proof of concept results through extensive simulation. In Phase II, the primary objective is to develop a fully-functional prototype of the VSS+ system, and demonstrate its performance on a manned or unmanned vehicle operating in Army-relevant conditions.
