CAR: A Mobile Application using Augmented Reality to Assist in Learning Traffic Signs
The paper presents an E-learning mobile application (CAR) that uses Augmented Reality to visualize information to assist in learning the traffic signs. The objective is making the learning process enjoyable, effective and interactive and to address the new generation’s preferences to use new technologies for self-learning. The mobile application displays animated scenarios to illustrate the meaning of the traffic control signs using Augmented Reality technology, to help users memorize the signs’ meaning easily. In addition, CAR provides adaptive preparatory tests to help users practice working towards the theoretical test and provides reports to demonstrate the difficulties in learning the meanings of signs. The paper will show the various mobile application features and will provide an assessment of its effectiveness and applicability.
