Visualisation of Electromagnetic Phenomena Using Augmented Reality Based on the Example of a Horn Antenna
Keywords:mobile application, Augmented Reality, AR, visualisation of electromagnetic phenomena, horn antennas
The paper presents and discusses the operation of a mobile application using the Augmented Reality (AR) to visualize the electromagnetic (EM) radiation of a horn antenna. The mobile application serves as a teaching aid and complements the laboratory setup for investigating EM radiation from a horn antenna. The EM radiation visualisation data were obtained through numerical simulation using the CST Studio Suite software, which enables modelling and simulation of various EM interactions. The mobile application was created using the Unity engine, which enables the development of mobile applications. The Vuforia library was used to implement digital data (obtained through numerical simulation) and overlay it onto the real image captured by the mobile camera. The application runs on devices with Android 8.0 and higher, and integrates the real 3D environment with virtual reality in real time.
