A Framework for Outdoor Mobile Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality (AR) presents a particularly powerful User Interface (UI) to context-aware computing environments. AR systems integrate virtual information into a person's physical environment so that he or she can get the latest information about the environment. In a limited mobile platform, the authors propose a framework for outdoor augmented reality which covers the main problems of limited resources in mobile, such as server dependency for data management or processing and network latency. In present era, "Smart Mobile" phones offer a unique combination of features: they are easily accessible, can be carried everywhere, have photo/video capabilities and are getting powerful enough to perform complex tasks.
