Paper Abstract

The paper describes the use of stochastic ray tracing methods for synthesizing of photorealistic images, formed by optical systems of augmented reality devices, that combines image synthesized by the optoelectronic device with the surrounding environment. As the result of the research, new methods are proposed that make it possible to increase the efficiency and preserve the physical correctness of stochastic ray tracing methods in the task of the photorealistic images synthesis formed by optical systems. The authors show that in such cases the methods of direct stochastic ray tracing are more effective for visual modeling of the augmented reality picture on an example of the head-up display (HUD) optical system. The proposed approaches allow to combine direct, inverse and bi-directional stochastic ray tracing methods in one calculation. The work is illustrated by examples of the synthesized images observed in HUD optical systems.
