Do you want to learn how to mix  Augmented Reality with Internet of Things (IoTAR) in Unity SDK?  Do you want to create the leading edge of technology and experience the future of holograms? Or want to take your Arduino Projects into Augmented Reality?
This is the only course of its kind that will teach  you all the fundamentals of the Augmented Reality and Internet of Things in the shortest time so that you can get started developing your own IoTAR Apps. 
I am an AR Developer with a Masters  Degree in Electronic Engineering. I have over 46’000 students on Udemy and over 62’000 subscribers on my YouTube Channel Augmented Startups.
This course is designed to help you understand the fundamentals of  Internet of Things and Augmented Reality using the Vuforia assets in Unity through practical  and easy to understand labs. This class covers these capabilities,  including getting started, Interfacing the Arduino Based- Particle Photon IoT Microcontroller with the magic of Augmented Reality.
We have designed this course so that you are able to interface any sensor to your IoT device and we show you what we think is the best way to visualize that data so that it makes sense when augmented into the real world.
You will learn all the fundamentals through practice as you follow along with the training.  Together we will build a strong foundation in IoT-AR in Unity SDK with this  training for anyone. This course will enable you to:
•Get started with the Particle Photon Development Kit.
•Get started in Unity and how to download the Vuforia SDK.
•Create a simple AR dashboard that interfaces to your Particle Photon.
•Once you have mastered the basics we go ahead and interface to sensors via IoT and bring them into AR.
•See the water level of a plant in AR, almost like having x-ray vision.
•Dim the intensity of virtual fire with a Photo cell.
•Measure distance in 3-Dimensions with Multi-target detection (Really Cool!) .
•See through a person’s body and see their heart beating in real time Augmented Reality (Really Cool!).
•Gauge force and gas on a AR meter as well gas emissions.
•See the weather in Augmented Reality of almost any city in AR using JSON.
•[Vuforia 7] and Unity 2017.3
•[Vuforia 7] Ground Plane
•[NEW] Vuforia 8 and Unity 2020.1
•[NEW] Vuforia 8 Video Playback
•[NEW] Vuforia 8 VI-SLAM Fundamentals
•[BONUS] Vuforia 8 Export to Android Device

*NB – Ensure you have all the required training material and tools before you start this course. See the Bill of Materials Lecture (free preview) for details. You are required to purchase beforehand Hardware (Particle Photon Microcontroller), Sensors and Unity Assets. This is to ensure a smooth learning experience for you.

You will learn

✓ Lab 1 – Where we set up out Particle Photon and blink an LED over the Web.
✓ Lab 2 – You will learn the basics of Augmented Reality by setting up Vuforia within the Unity environment… from downloading it to installation, as well as licencing.
✓ Lab 3 – Forms the basis of IoTAR where we blend the boundaries of Internet of thing with Augmented Reality with a simple web dashboard in AR.
✓ Lab 4 – We look at how we can look at ordinary connected objects differently using AR. The thirsty plant project shows just that. It is like you have x ray vision and able to see the water level of plant.
✓ Lab 5 – We use a light dependent resistor or LDR to control the light intensity of an augmented reality camp fire.
✓ Lab 6 – is really cool. Using Multiple Targets in Vuforia, we are able to measure distance in 3D! The app we creating is called RulAR which can make 3D measurement seamless.
✓ Lab 7 – gives you the powers of looking into a 3d skeleton and visualising a heart beating in real time from a pulse heart rate sensor connected to your particle photon.
✓ Lab 8 – You can visualise the temperature of any liquid chromatically. This means if your drink is hot, you AR cup will appear red.
✓ Lab 9 – We visualise force in augmented reality on a gauge as a percentage of total force using a force sensitive resistor.
✓ Lab 10 – We use our particle photon to detect alcohol gas and augments your reality with emissions of virtual gas.
✓ Lab 11 – We move away from the particle photon by fetching weather data off the web. We are able to retrieve the weather in AR for almost any city around the world in real time.


• Enthusiasm for Augmented Reality
• PC/ Laptop that meets Unity SDK minimum requirements
• Important! – Unity 5.4.3 and Vuforia SDK (I show you how to install both for free)
• A Webcam (Can use an Android Phone as a webcam) – Logitech webcams work best
• Printer or Phone/Tablet to print out or display the AR marker
• Very Basic Unity Experience
• Important! – Particle Photon (Approximately $19)
• Important! – Sensors as prescribed in the Bill of Materials Lecture (Approximately $55)
• Important! – Unity Assets as prescribed in the Bill of Materials Lecture (Approximately $65)
• Basics of Vuforia from my Create Augmented Reality Apps using Vuforia in Unity Course if you are a Total beginner

This course is for

• This course is for those who want to learn Augmented Reality
• This course is NOT for people who are not willing to practice along. You won’t learn by watching but rather by implementing the labs that I provide in this course.
• Beginners in Augmented Reality or Mixed Reality
• This course is implemented in Unity on Windows. Android or iOS deployment is not part of the scope of this course. However you can easily find tutorials on how to export your AR app to mobile Operating Systems

So a bit about me, Ritesh Kanjee: I’ve graduated from University of Johannesburg as an Electronic Engineer with a Masters in Image Processing and 8 years ago I started my online school called Augmented Startups where I have over 97’000 subscribers on YouTube and over 60’000 students on Augmented AI Bootcamp/Udemy.
I’ve worked with popular tools such as TensorFlow Keras, Open CV, and PyTorch and I’ve also produced High ranking tutorials that feature on Google and YouTube. My Machine Learning Series is also one of the most viewed videos, over 300 thousand views and you’ll find them ranked right at the top on YouTube search results.
From my tutorials, I have received a lot of great feedback and testimonials from students all around the world, I will share those reviews towards the end of the video
And I have also presented at international conferences and meetups in AI. For industry standard AI, I have partnered up with Geeky Bee AI who are Experts in the field in AI and Deep Learning and have experience developing AI apps for real world applications.
