User generated annotations for augmented reality


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 8 October


During this talk I would like to present our latest research on tracking and re-identification of user generated annotations on mobile phones. This includes a novel way of panorama-based orientation tracking for online creation and simultaneous tracking of panoramas. Our novel system uses a natural feature mapping and tracking method, which is sufficiently efficient and robust to allow 3 degrees of freedom tracking on mobile phones.

The second part of my talk builds up on this tracking technique and shows the potential of in-situ creation of AR annotation of the environment directly on the mobile phone. Previous authoring or annotation tools were mostly bound to desktop computers, or could operate only at the accuracy of the employed mobile sensors. Our tracking approach allows creating annotations in place and storing them in a self-descriptive way on a server, in order to allow a later re-identification.
