Applying Augmented Reality to Represent the New Theory of Agriculture “Sa-rae Athitaya”
Keywords:Kasetaditaya, Augmented reality, Surin Agricultural Project
This research aims to develop Augmented Reality (AR) to represent information regarding the Agricultural Project for Aditayathorn Rice Field and evaluate the user satisfaction towards the AR application. The research participants are those people who travel to the agricultural project site where a sample group of 400 people is selected using convenience sampling. The research tools are based on AR and statistical evaluation techniques. The research data was collected from July to August 2020 and analysed using mean and standard deviations. The results showed that AR was capable of representing information about the project in eleven 3D models. The models can be represented and accessed through different applications (i.e., Android, iOS, and web browser) with background music. The project information can be displayed in the form of text on 3D scenes, which can be performed through cartoons and 3D animations with music and sound effects. The survey results also indicated that the participants were able to learn information of the project more conveniently and quickly. The participants also rated the project with high scores in terms of novelty in learning and interesting information representation.
