Augmented reality is a young but very active research area. It is considered a variant of virtual reality. In virtual reality, the user is immersed completely in the virtual scene; whereas in an augmented reality system, the user can see the real scene with the virtual object superimposed onto the real scene. Registration in augmented reality aligns the virtual object with the real scene in 3D. The use of computer vision techniques for registration is an ideal method to accomplish this. In this thesis, a computer vision-based interactive object registration system was developed for augmented reality. In this system, the user can register 3D virtual object onto real images by reconstructing the registration plane. The registration process is semi automatic and only needs intuitive mouse clicking. Experiments show that the system is easy to use and has very good practical registration accuracy.
