In this paper, we present an innovative Augmented Reality prototype designed for industrial education and training applications. The system uses an Optical See-Through HMD integrating a calibrated camera and a laser pointer to interactively augment an industrial object with virtual sequences designed to train a user for specific maintenance tasks. The training leverages user interactions by simply pointing on a specific object component. The architecture of our prototype involves two main vision-based modules : camera localization and user-interaction handling. The first module includes markerless trackers for camera localization, which can deal with partial occlusions and specular reflections on the metallic object surfaces. In the second module, we developed fast image processing methods for red laser dot tracking. By combining these processing elements, the proposed system is able to interactively augment in real time an industrial object making the learning process more interesting and intuitive.
