Color Matching Criteria in Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (AR) is growing in popularity, blending virtual objects into the real world, and one challenge it demands is the detailed colorimetric study. This research comprises two parts: a model of the displays in a commercial AR optical see-through head-mounted display (OST-HMO) was made using colorimetric measurements and spatial characterization, followed by a color matching experiment to explore the matching criteria when matching nonuniform colors in AR. The OST-HMO model was constructed by combining a traditional display model with camera-measured spatial luminance maps. Data from the color matching experiment were compared with the spatial model in order to infer the observers' matching criteria when matching nonuniform patches. The experimental result suggests that the matching criterion is most likely position- or content-guided and measurably different from other possible criteria. The results can be used to improve uniformity in OST-HMOs and as a reference in modeling color appearance in AR. © 2018 Society for Imaging Science and Technology.
