"Augmented reality (AR) is a relatively new and emerging technology, which seeks to enhance the virtual reality (VR) by integrating real world information into the virtual environment. The augmentation of the virtual world with the real world is particularly important when the real world is too complicated to model and maintain or when very high accuracy is required. The aim of this research is to apply augmented reality in product modeling, analysis and development. An augmented reality environment for simulation and validation of the dynamics of a parts feeding system is presented in this dissertation. It is hoped that by monitoring and 3-D tracking the system behavior, a dynamic simulation environment with augmented and virtual realities can be helpful to increase considerably the reliability of the system before investing valuable resources in construction"--Abstract, page iv.
