Abstract:

This study focuses on augmented reality (AR) technology for the enhancement of Berber heritage in Tunisia. The article stems from the motivation of students at the Higher Institute of Computer Sciences and Multimedia in Sfax to run projects to launch augmented reality (AR) applications during the academic year 2021-2022 as part of their final year project. This endeavor is part of an innovative plan for preserving and maintaining Tunisian cultural heritage through new immersive technologies. In this perspective, this paper studies a project that proposes methods of interactivity between Berber jewelry and the Tunisian public in order to enhance the country’s cultural heritage when using Unity 3D, entitled TUN’AR, and Vuforia so as to valorize Berber jewelry.
