Augmented Reality (AR) is a relatively new technology that allows mixing virtual with real world in different proportions to achieve a level of immersion that no virtual equipment can provide. Recent advances of computer and vision technology make possible AR systems to go beyond indoor applications (e.g. surgery and inspection of hazardous environments) to support complex analysis, decision making and governing processes. A new breed of computing called \"Augmented ubiquitous computing\" has resulted from the convergence of wearable computing, wireless networking and mobile AR interfaces.
