Trek Innovations SA, the Thessaloniki based affiliated company of HYPERTECH, implemented and successfully completed the R&D project entitled “Mobile Search: Advanced Search Engine of Cultural Content for Mobile Devices Using Augmented Reality Technology”.

The project aimed to create a sophisticated engine for mobile devices, for the promotion and dissemination of the cultural heritage, using state-of-the-art 3D object search, routing recommendations and augmented reality technologies. The implemented project services target to provide, among others:

Advanced visual search and retrieval services on multimedia cultural resources

Personalised and adaptive user experience assisted by attractive augmented reality techniques

The produced project results were successfully evaluated and validated in two representative pilot cases:
